An amazing and unique jazz guitarist, George Van Eps' made his first recording in 1930. He was busy in the 30s playing with Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller and recording with many including Red Norvo. In 1939 Van Eps switched to a seven-string guitar that he designed. After World War II Van Eps settled in the Los Angeles area busy in the film, radio and recording studios. Once In Awhile contains 21 tracks from Van Eps' 1946-49 recordings for the Jump label. Most are trio sides with Eddie Miller on tenor saxophone and Stanley Wrightsman on piano including the 1946 title track, a song he re-recorded in 1949 with bass and drums being issued for the first time on CD here.
