here's some early pass on what looks to be a fender jazzmaster.

Absolutely effortless through the changes.

And when it came to accompaniment I don't think anyone could bring the guitar as close to the piano as joe pass did.

I know him from his occasional appearances on tv in the seventies. I'd never seen him on a solid body before or any other jazzman for that matter. Breathtaking technique and great feel.
The only thing that exists is this moment now.

The guitar in this clip is said to be a Fender Jaguar, with a 25 inch scale. There's some interesting back 'n forth from the commenters to this clip about the issue. It's noted that Pass went to a Gibson ES175 jazz box for most of the remainder of his career.

He was indeed a musical genius.

I don't know what his sightreading skills might have been, but either way, he didn't let that get in his way!

I think that joe pass is one of the masters on chord sustitution and i love the way he plays effortless, you should see a clinc guitar called hot liks where he explains how he pyas his unique style

Absoultely fabulous.

And Ella.  Voice for the ages.  What an absolute treat.  It's ironic how such a sad and emotional delivery can bring a smile to your face.
