Jazz à Juan - 11-20 Juillet 2014

Lee Ritenour & Dave Grusin

An emblematic figure of the Californian fusion music of the 70s, a mix of electro and jazz with a very rhythmic rhythm and dazzling effects, Lee Ritenour (aka the aptly named "Captain Fingers") has played with the greatest and recorded more than forty albums. This outstanding guitarist has over 3,000 recording sessions with a wide range of artists: first session at the age of sixteen with The Mamas and The Papas, then Pink Floyd (the album The Wall), Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel, Steely Dan, BB King, Bob Marley, Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins, Frank Sinatra, Quincy Jones, Aretha Franklin, Steve Lukather...

During the 1970s, already twice winner of the "Guitar Player" referendum, Lee Ritenour, a luminous, sharp and inspired guitarist, began recording under his own name, releasing numerous albums in which his style, influenced by Wes Montgomery, John McLaughlin and Latin music, asserted itself. In the 1980s, his records were highly successful (a Grammy® for his 1985 album Harlequin and no less than seventeen nominations during his prolific career). Co-founder of the smooth jazz band «Fourplay,» this apostle of jazz, rock, blues, funk (and even classical) fusion, introduces himself to Juan with Dave Grusin. Composer of film music (Les Trois Jours du Condor, Tootsie, Le Champion, La Maison du lac, etc.), Oscar winner in 1989 for Robert Redford’s film Milagro, Grusin is also known as an excellent jazz keyboardist. During their 40-year friendship, Lee and Dave have recorded three albums and have been nominated three times for Grammy Awards®.
