Guitarist Joe Pass was born January 13, 1929 in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
Pass recieved his first guitar as a birthday gift when he was nine, and by age 14 he was playing gigs with Tony Pastor and Charlie Barnet.
In the 1960's, he recorded in Los Angeles and played for television regularly.
He recorded and toured with Frank Sinatra, Joe Williams and Johnny Mathis, and played for The Tonight Show.
Joe Pass performs a solo rendition of "Satin Doll."
The tune was written by Billy Strayhorn and Duke Ellington in 1953, later becoming the Ellington Orchestra's signature closing number.
Pass, along with most other jazz musicians, was deeply influenced by Ellington. Pass recorded Portraits of Duke Ellington, a tribute to the legendary composer and bandleader, shortly after his death in 1974.
