The Jazz Guitar Stylings of Howard Roberts consists of transcriptions of melodies, solos, comping examples, and ensemble passages from Howard's extensive solo albums spanning from the 50s to the 70s- all in accurate detail. There is a bio of "HR" as he was affectionately known to all of his acquaintances and fans, with personal comments from Pete Jolly, a well-known LA jazz and studio pianist who was best friends with Howard going back to their early days in Phoenix. An extensive section covers the history and development of the Epiphone© and Gibson© signature guitars that Howard created along with the Benson© amp story, as told by Howard's original partner, Ron Benson, who established the first of the 'boutique' amplifier companies, so common today. Along the way, Howard's involvement with guitar education and publishing is described culminating in the opening of the Guitar Institute of Technology (now the Musicians Institute) in 1977.  The book includes a discography of Howard's solo albums as well as the key hit records and major motion picture soundtracks he participated in as a studio musician in Los Angeles.
