CHARLIE  CHRISTIAN  SOLOGRAPHY


These are the chronicles of Charlie Christian’s recorded legacy.
Listed by date, the solography contains location, personnel, matrix, tune title, and catalog numbers.
Where applicable, alternate titles are listed after the tune title.

Charlie Christian’s solos are outlined below the tune title, as well as other passages in the tune where he can be prominently heard.
