Johnny Smith biography

Postby smokymtguitar09 » Tue Sep 22, 2015 12:09 pm

I received a notice from Lin Flanagan in Sussex, England about his biography on jazz guitarist Johnny Smith. Gary Atkins, Chet's nephew in Colorado, arranged for an interview by Lin with Mr. Smith shortly before the guitarist death just shy of age 91.
Lin Flanagan: It has been a long, long time coming, but Moonlight in Vermont: The Official Biography of Johnny Smith is now available from Centerstream Publishing at: http://www.centerstream-usa.com

There is also now an official website for Johnny: http://www.johnnysmith.org

I hope you find that the biography and the website both do the Great Man justice. It's time for me to go and lie down in a darkened room.

Chet would also have been 91 this year.
