June 12th, 2011 – Klugh In Concert

I’ve been patiently waiting the past couple months for one of my favorite guitarists to perform in Seattle. The incomparable Earl Klugh has produced chart topping  jazz music since the mid-seventies and has completed over 30 albums / CD’s . When I found out that he would be appearing  at our  local Dimitrous Jazz Alley here in Seattle, I knew I wasn’t about the miss the opportunity to see him again.  I had no idea however that also one of my favorite saxophone players; the legendary Nelson Rangell, was touring with and accompanied  Earl Klugh on the set.  Though I wasn’t immediately familiar with the rest of the band, but keyboardist  David Lee Chong  (formerly of Parliament/Funkadelic), Gene Dunlap -drums and Jeff Cox – bass,  really held their own and provided and outstanding evening of entertainment.  I stayed for both sets and as usual when attending gigs at Jazz Alley, I took quite a few images of Earl and the band and yeah, I definitely had a few of those moments. Here are a few of my favorites so far.
