Jimmy Stewart

Jimmy Stewart (born September 8, 1937) is an American guitarist who has performed a wide variety of music since the late-1950s. He is best known for his association with jazz guitarist, Gabor Szabo, but has been extensively involved in many genres of music; not only as a guitarist, but also as an arranger, conductor, producer, orchestrator, musical director, and educator. Stewart has appeared on over 1,200 recordings. Leonard Feather wrote in his Encyclopedia Of Jazz In The Seventies: “Stewart, an exceptionally experienced and able artist on all plectrum instruments, attributes his inspiration to a range of influences, from Segovia and Bartok to Charlie Christian and Laurindo Almeida."
