Guitarist Earl Klugh returns to the Ferst Center For The Arts at Georgia Tech on Saturday, April 12, with a Night Of Guitars that includes solo, duo and trio performances with fellow guitarists Chuck Loeb and Norman Brown.
Klugh's latest record is Handpicked, a collection of his favorite cover songs. Klugh and WCLK's Jay Edwards chatted recently about the record, the upcoming Atlanta performance, and his role as an artist inside and outside of jazz.
Jay Edwards: Earl Klugh is master alchemist, always turning his nylon strings into sensitive reflections that end up embraced worldwide. The charts he produces cross musical genres. Producing more than 50 charts for classical orchestras, R&B, country and folk has set him apart from just being a contemporary jazz artist. In three and half decades he has performed with numerous artists such as Yusef Lateef, Chick Corea, Chet Adkins, George Benson and many more. Earl's essential excitement of music making is renewed in the studios as well as in live performance. The recent release of Hand Picked reflects his personalityand once again shows his mastery of his instrument.
