Beautiful early jazz guitar. Eddie Lang was the first player who defined guitar as a real jazz instrument. He was in great demand as a studio player during his tragically brief life, guesting on recordings by anybody who was anybody in the late 20s' jazz, from Armstrong, Ellington, Bix, and Dorsey brothers on down. This Yazoo comp collects his sides as a leader, including two solo pieces (Rachmaninoff's Prelude opens the disc), duos with guitarists Lonnie Johnson and Karl Cress, and several guitar-piano duos as well.

Bitrate isn't high, but I don't think this matters for recordings from 1920s.
