Walker, Makoto Ozone, Tom Kennedy, Dave Weckl, Paulinho Da Costa, Ronald Bruner Jr., Chris Coleman, Bob Sheppard and Rashawn Ross<br /> <br /> “The concept for A Twist of Rit combines new material and tunes selected from earlier albums. We twisted, flipped and reconstructed those songs with a twelve-piece band. Several of the songs are from my very first album, First Course, recorded in 1975 and the Rit album in 1980.” - Lee Ritenour<br /> <br /> GRAMMY-winning, guitarist Lee Ritenour, AKA Captain Fingers, has a wide-ranging array of material to revive, as evidenced by A Twist of Rit. 2015 commemorates 40 years since his debut recording, First Course, on Epic Records. A Twist of Rit, set for release on August 21, 2015 via Concord Records, is a magnificent follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2012 album Rhythm Sessions.<br /> <br /> A Twist of Rit spotlights Ritenour with several long-time musical cohorts, including keyboardists John Beasley, Dave Grusin and Patrice Rushen; saxophonist Ernie Watts; bassists Melvin Lee Davis, Tom Kennedy and Dave Weckl; and percussionist Paulinho Da Costa. That core group is augmented by drummers Ronald Bruner Jr. and Chris Coleman, along with Bob Sheppard on saxophone and Rashawn Ross playing flugelhorn. Joining Ritenour for the first time are guitarists Michael Thompson, Wah Wah Watson and David T. Walker, plus Japanese pianist Makoto Ozone.<br /> <br /> A Twist of Rit features Ritenour’s soaring guitar lines with 12 of his compositions ranging from the funky fusion and sophisticated jazz that he has become so well known for. All of the material was captured by his longtime GRAMMY Award-winning engineer Don Murray and the tracks were recorded with everyone performing together, old-school, but with modern, state-of-the-art recording techniques. Another album highlight will be the debut of Hungarian guitarist Tony Pusztai, Grand Prize Winner of Ritenour’s biennial, 2014 Six String Theory Competition. Pusztai was selected from over 500 entries and 72 participating countries.<br /> <br /> Signed CD for $10: <a href="http://kingsroadmerch.com/lee-ritenour/">http://kingsroadmerch.com/lee-ritenour/</a> iTunes: <a href="http://smarturl.it/TwistOfRit">http://smarturl.it/TwistOfRit</a> Facebook: <a href="https://www.facebook.com/LeeRitenourMusic">https://www.facebook.com/LeeRitenourMusic</a>Lee's website: <a href="http://leeritenour.com/">http://leeritenour.com/</a> Lee Ritenour - "Maybe Tomorrow" tag:esbjazzradio.ning.com,2012-11-26:4069663:Video:26443 2012-11-26T16:37:31.179Z ESB http://esbjazzradio.ning.com/profile/esb <a href="http://esbjazzradio.ning.com/video/lee-ritenour-maybe-tomorrow"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/TSXMX*MOX47pOjBh0l7aD0ejFnfzF0Yqa90AjA-L*eFcekOqFVn7k2qM2COT5aRO9Igxt3APWPekUgdDtClC3YSBsHSBdqTE/817895766.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Lee Ritenour - "Maybe Tomorrow"<br></br> From New Album: Rhythm Sessions | 2012 Concordrecords<br></br> <br></br> In a career that spans five decades and more than 40 albums, guitarist Lee Ritenour has developed a keen understanding of the symbiotic balance between the frontman and the supporting players, between the wisdom of experience and the enthusiasm of youth.

On Rhythm Sessions, he surrounds himself with a cadre of high-profile veterans and promising newcomers all of whom reaffirm the vital role played by the rhythm section in any worthwhile musical endeavor.<br /> <br /> Included on the Rhythm Sessions roster are luminaries like Chick Corea, George Duke, Stanley Clarke, Dave Grusin, Marcus Miller and many others. Also appearing throughout the record are the winners of Ritenour s 2012 Rhythm Section Competition, an international event he launched in 2009 as a guitar competition and later expanded to include aspiring keyboardists, bassists and percussionists. The competition winners appearing on the album include keyboardist Hans de Wild (Holland), pianist Demetrius Nabors (Michigan), bassist Michael Feinberg (New York) and drummer Selim Munir (Turkey). The album also features Ritenour s 19-year-old son Wesley, an aspiring drummer in his own right on one of the tracks.<br /> <br /> The most recent result of that ongoing experiment is an album that embraces a variety of sounds and grooves, all rooted in jazz, but also layered with shades of funk, R&amp;B, Latin, world music and more. The album s sense of variety stems from the eclectic source material. Some songs were penned by Ritenour, while others come from heavyweights like Herbie Hancock, Dave Grusin, Chick Corea, EST and Nick Drake. I wanted the various rhythm sections assembled for this album the guitar, keyboards, bass and drums to be very organic, says Ritenour. "The songs I wrote for this project were written with these different musicians in mind, and the songs I picked by other songwriters brought to mind certain players as well. So while my name may be on this record, it s as much about these other players as it is about me."<br /> <br /> Rhythm Sessions on Amazon: <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Rhythm-Sessions-Lee-Ritenour/dp/B008OIQYTG/">http://www.amazon.com/Rhythm-Sessions-Lee-Ritenour/dp/B008OIQYTG/</a> In a career that spans five decades and more than 40 albums, gui...

So while my name may be on this record, it s as much about these other players as it is about me."<br /> <br /> Ritenour's previous recording, 6 String Theory, had focused primarily on guitar by featuring the international winners of his 2009 guitar competition. However, in keeping with his ongoing commitment to discovering and mentoring new talent, he quickly realized that there was so much ground yet to be covered. "There are just so many great piano players and bass players and drummers out there, so when it came time to make Rhythm Sessions, I thought, Why not make a record featuring some of those great players, and then extend the contest to include the rhythm section, and let the young rhythm section winners make an appearance on the record?"<br /> <br /> This mix of seasoned players with newcomers results in a multi-layered, multi-textural and extremely engaging recording. "I'm at a point in my career where I'm marshalling all of my skills and experience over 40 years and really putting it all into an album like Rhythm Sessions, he says. I've always loved working with great talent, and at the same time finding new young talent and opening doors for them. I want to take as many opportunities as I can to give something back as a way of expressing my thanks for all that s been given to me." -- Amazon.com<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.leeritenour.com/">http://www.leeritenour.com/</a> Lee Jones - Game On (feat.
