 Telarc International: Joe Pass
Joe's father could sense the budding talent in his son and pushed Joe to practice from books, radio, records, and tunes that were whistled around the house.
Leonard Feather called Pass "the most exciting new talent on jazz guitar to emerge since Wes Montgomery came to prominence in the 1950s." But it was producer Norman Granz, who first heard Pass in 1970 and signed the guitarist to the Pablo label in 1973, who brought this "new talent" to international prominence.
Pass’ mastery of his instrument was such that the challenge was no longer one of technique, although we can still marvel at the way he supplied his own bass lines and chords while devising single-note solos, but one of interpreting the song in new and meaningful ways.

 Joe Pass : Unforgettable - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Here is a second brace of solo Pass tracks from the sessions that have already yielded Songs For Ellen.
A general bit of advice: it is better to listen to this album in small doses (a few tracks at a time), try to mentally filter out the very closely recorded mechanical noises the fingers make on the guitar, and not expect anything startling to leap out at you.
Better yet, try some of Pass' earlier solo albums (such as the Virtuoso series, also on Pablo) before embarking upon this.

 Virtuoso in New York - Joe Pass - Song Listings   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
But for jazz artists, there can be some truth in that saying; the history of jazz is full of artists who did some of their best work after 40.
Joe Pass is a perfect example; Pass turned 40 in 1969, and the '70s were an amazingly productive time for the late guitar icon (who recorded frequently during that decade thanks to Pablo founder Norman Granz).
In fact, Pass did so much recording during the '70s that albums of previously unreleased material were still coming out long after his death from cancer in 1994.

In the hands of a master like Pass his technique has resulted in more than a few breathtaking moments.

 Jazz Artist Biography - Joe Pass@ jazzreview.com
Guitarist Joe Pass has been on the scene since the 1940s, achieving widespread recognition in the '70s due to shrewd management by Norman Granz.
Since singing to Pablo, he made triumphant appearances at the Montreux Festival (Joe Pass at Montreux) and JATP tours with Oscar Peterson, Zoot Sims etc. A sensitive lyrical soloist with war and sonorous tone, Pass can also sound like a full rhythm section in accompaniment.
A duet with Ella Fitzgerald (Ella Fitzgerald & Joe Pass) is relaxed and melodic, while the collaboration with Oscar Peterson reaches a more demanding artistic peak (Oscar Peterson Et Joe Pass A Salle Pleyel) with both players at full stretch.

Arrival is truly a joy and well worth the price for any fan of Ellis, Pass, or the art of jazz guitar in general.
