Earl Klugh
Saturday April 18, 2015 8:00 pm
Since GRAMMY®-winner Earl Klugh released his inaugural album in 1976, the Detroit-born master of the acoustic-classical guitar has become one of the most imitated icons of the instrument, issued dozens of records, 24 of which have been on Billboard’s top-10 list of jazz albums and 6 that made it to the No. 1 slot. During that time, Klugh’s recordings also received 13 Grammy® nominations (the latest of which is for his current release HandPicked) – and his collaboration with pianist Bob James, One on One, walked away with the 1980 Grammy® Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album.

While music remains Klugh’s craft and passion, several of his albums feature glimpses of another form of entertainment: The Movies. Klugh’s guitar is featured on the soundtrack scores of “How to Beat the High Cost of Living,” “Marvin and Tige” and “Just Between Friends.” Many of Klugh’s albums feature his interpretations of classic movie themes and songs in movie soundtracks, including “Alfie,” “Jo Ann’s Song,” “Moon River,” “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead,” themes from “Goldfinger,” “Romeo and Juliet,” “Spartacus,” “The Cincinnati Kid” and more.

While preparing for his Jazz and The Movies portion of Klugh’s three-year artist residency at The Ferst Center, Dave Grusin and Lee Ritenour immediately came to mind. “Dave Grusin is one of my favorite film composers of all time,” reflects Klugh. “I was a fan of his long before I requested to have [Dave] produce my first three albums for Blue Note Records [Earl Klugh, Living Inside Your Love and Fingerpaintings]. He also wrote arrangements for and performed on quite a few of the tunes.”

“Lee recorded on several of my early albums, and on many of Dave Grusin’s film and studio projects. I am a big fan of both of their music as individuals and as a collaborative duo. It will be very special to share the stage with them at The Ferst Center, especially with all of us having a great passion for the movies and the music that makes them even more extraordinary!”

DAVE GRUSIN: Grusin’s prolific career includes 10 Grammy®-Awards in scoring and arranging categories, over 60 feature film scores and 8 Academy Award nominations. He co-founded the influential jazz label GRP and has distinguished himself as a composer, arranger, musician and bandleader, as well as a recording artist with over 25 albums to his credit. | Grusin.net LEE RITENOUR: Lee Ritenour has earned 19 Grammy® nominations, was a founding member of jazz supergroup Fourplay, and has recorded over 40 albums with 35 chart songs. Some of his many notable performances were with The Mamas and the Papas (at age 16), Tony Bennett and Lena Horne, Herbie Hancock, Dizzy Gillespie and more. Grusin and Ritenour won a Grammy®-Award together for Best Arrangement on an Instrumental in 1985. | leeritenour.com
