While lesser known than some of his contemporaries, John Gray was a highly versatile and proficient guitarist who recorded with numerous important figures. Over the course of his twenty-one year recording career, from 1947-1968, Gray participated in sessions with the likes of George Shearing, Teddy Edwards, Louis Armstrong, Jack Wilson, and Philly Joe Jones, and recorded the excellent album "The New Wave" (which also features guitarist Herb Ellis) as a leader in 1962.
