Lee Ritenour (Jazz): Friendship

Album Notes

Personnel: Lee Ritenour (electric & acoustic guitars), Ernie Watts (soprano & tenor saxophones), Don Grusin (electric piano), Dave Grusin (electric & acoustic pianos), Abraham Laboriel (electric bass), Steve Gadd (drums), Steve Forman (percussion).

The third of three Lee Ritenour sets originally cut for Japanese JVC and in 1991 reissued domestically on CD matches the studio guitarist with what could be called the "Crossover All-Stars": Ernie Watts (on tenor and soprano), both Dave and Don Grusin on keyboards, electric bassist Abraham Laboriel, drummer Steve Gadd and percussionist Steve Forman. They perform pleasant but somewhat forgettable originals by Rit, Watts and both Grusins, the kind of lightly funky background music that one would expect from expert studio players. ~ Scott Yanow
