Springfield, Greene County, Missouri, United States (1924 – 2003)

Both virtuosos and innovators on their respective instruments, steel guitar player Speedy West and guitarist Jimmy Bryant recorded genre-shattering instrumental music in the 1950s that combined country music with bebop jazz music. Blisteringly fast tempos, pleasing melodic phrasing coupled with startling technique, an undying sense of playfulness, and unusual sounds squeezed out of their instruments were their forte–and their recordings together are actually the first recordings ever featuring a solid-body electric guitar.
