Default Looking archtop guitar music

Lately ive been hook by the amazing archtop guitar builders (Mirabella, Elferink, and the list goes on as we know), but I want to listen some music made with archtop guitars.

I would like to listen acoustic archtops, without pickup, but plugged too of course, and, very important, i really would like to listen a duo of guitars (not just a solo duo, but yes 2 guitars in the music, or a trio, or a quartet, etc). If you can reccomend me something to listen thanks. I think the most close to this i found was the quartet of the 4 seasons with the Monteleone guitars.

Not looking on the big names as Wes Montgomery, Metheny or any of that kind, unknonw people (at least for me).

This is my first post here so sorry if this is not the kind request to post here, and if you can reccomend me a site to find music would be good. Thanks.

Go to YouTube and type in "archtop guitar" - there's a lot of good music out there...

If you like nice melodies and harmonies, check out the Steve Greene Trio. Steve's CD's are available on Amazon. He also has a website: SteveGreene.com.

This page has links to a lot of good acoustic archtop music, including duets by Eddie Lang, Carl Kress, Dick McDonough, and others. This music was conceived for and performed on exactly these instruments:

Also, look for the CD "Pioneers of Jazz Guitar"

Thanks for replying.

If any have some other names come to mind would be nice to listen.

Im not looking for early/vintage players, yes vintage music but not vintage players, could be modern music and players too.
