Lee Ritenour Live in Studio 8/26/2010

SOURCE: Published: 2010-08-29

Here is a great performance from Lee Ritenour live from the KPLU/Jazz 24 Studios from last Thursday.

When Lee came into the KPLU/Jazz24 studios on an unseasonably cool August afternoon, he arrived with a rhythm section hot enough to raise Seattle's temperature a few degrees: drummer, Will Kennedy and bassist, Melvin Davis. Together, they laid down three delightful tracks; Water's Edge, L.P. (For Les Paul), and Freddie Hubbard's composition, Povo (watch the video below).

Along the way, Lee talked with jazz host, Abe Beeson, about his early years as studio guitarist and how the music scene has changed over the course of his career. He also talked about going all over the world and even having a talent contest to get all the guest guitarists he wanted for his latest recording project.
