Legendary Jazz artist Lee Ritenour shows a great ability to make a wide variety of veterans (Chick Corea, George Duke, Stanley Clarke, Dave Grusin, Marcus Miller & others) & newcomers to jell well with his own band to produce this delightful jazz album titled 'Rhythm Sessions'. Lee Ritenour has been doing this sort of thing for a while now as well as his experience of being in the music industry for more than 40 years. The CD (12 tracks) has an entertaining/enjoyable feel : great melodical music, wonderful Gibson guitar finger pick-ups, beautiful piano accompaniment as in the tracks "River Man", "Fat Albert Rotunda", "800 Streets By Feet", "Children's Song #1" & "Rose Pedals" and wonderful vocals as in the 'pop/rock-ish' track "Maybe Tomorrow". Stand-outs/gems/solid tracks include "The Village" (this is the opening track with a wonderful melody & great Gibson guitar work), "800 Streets By Feet", "Children's Song #1", "L. A. By Bike", "Spam - Boo - Limbo", "Rose Pedals" & the closing track "Punta Del Soul". Great tracks include "River Man", "Fat Albert Rotunda", "Maybe Tomorrow" (featuring the renown South African musicians Zamajobe & R. J. Benjamin on lead & backing vocals respectively), "July" & "Dolphins Don't Dance". There is no weak track or CD filler, production is excellent & great execution of good compositions.

On overall, you have a great CD release by the jazz maestro Lee Ritenour in 'Rhythm Sessions' : wonderful collaboration of veterans & newcomers. A highly recommended CD listening pleasure.

This guy is at the top of his game both musically and engineering wise. I'll forgo all the accolades of the music. If you like Lee and the last 10 years or so of his work you will like this. What I'm happiest about is that along with his last Blu Ray release "Overtime" the engineering / mix / sound is absolutely first rate. If you have the capability download the 96/24 or better version from HD Tracks. Stellar Sound!

This is a typical Lee Ritenour recording, jazzy, funky and colorful. I really like how he doesn't come in on the 'one' of each solo.

If you are a Lee Ritenour fan you will love this album. I think this is his most creative sound in some time and it is a 5 star CD. Looking forward to seeing him play some of these songs later this year.

As on his last album, 6 string theory, Lee Ritenour is gathering top class studio artists and creates an extremely versatile CD. Anybody liking melodic, rhythmic jazz music with a lot of different facettes will have much longlasting fun. You feel the joy the musicians had when recording this album. You'll find some interesting videos on youtube, showing the production of this recording.

Great title for this Ritenour work. Lee really cooks up a storm with the help of some fantastic sidemen and is welcome change from some of his other CD's. Lots of talent and lots of Rhythm here...

Lee has always been a technical wiz and I am noticing his playing becoming more than just flash and making musical statements.
