From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Sal Salvador (1925–1999) was a bebop jazz guitarist and a prominent music educator.


Salvador was born in Monson, Massachusetts and began his professional career in New York City. He eventually moved to Stamford, Connecticut. He taught guitar at the University of Bridgeport in Bridgeport, Connecticut as well as at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury, Connecticut. He authored several instruction books for beginning to advanced guitarists.

In addition to recordings with Stan Kenton and with his own groups, Salvador can be heard in the film Blackboard Jungle during a scene in a bar where a recording on which he is featured is played on the jukebox. He is also featured playing with Sonny Stitt in the film Jazz on a Summer's Day at the Newport Jazz Festival.
