About Leonard Ware
Leonard Ware (December 28, 1909 - March 30, 1974) was an American jazz guitar player and composer, who was one of the early electric guitarists in jazz. Ware was born in Richmond, Virginia and attended Tuskegee Institute in his youth, where he learned to play oboe. He switched to guitar and began leading his own trio, which performed in New York's Greenwich Village during the 1930s and 1940s
Ware played on clarinetist/saxophonist Sidney Bechet's first recordings as leader in November 1938 for the Vocalion label ("What a Dream", "Jungle Drums")
