Ever since he gained attention playing with George Benson as a teenager in the early '70s, guitarist Earl Klugh has been quite popular and famed for his pretty sound. Klugh, who has several times stated that he does not consider himself a jazz soloist, generally records melodic and lightly funky material that fits into the easy listening music he enjoys playing. On this particular CD, the main departure from his usual recordings is that Klugh wrote all 11 songs. Joined by a large and sympathetic rhythm section plus an occasional saxophonist, Klugh does not take any chances or depart from his usual formula, creating superior background music that will please his fans.
