Earl Klugh is currently residing at The Blue Note, performing August 5-10th at 8:00PM and 10:30PM nightly. Klugh recently released his new album "The Spice of Life" late April on Koch Records, his first full-scale album production after a 9 year hiatus. Even after all of this time, his single "Driftin" quickly reached #1 on the Smooth Jazz Radio charts.

Last night before he went on, the back office was treated to a quick private show when Earl approached us and asked if he could warm up in the office. Reclining back with his eyes almost closed, Klugh strolled softly along the neck of his classical guitar, walking a bass line while soloing over "All The Things You Are," "It Could Happen To You" and other standards. He was as effortless playing the jazz standards as he is playing his own brand of contemporary jazz that has made him a household name. In other words, Klugh is a monster player in any musical situation. Needless to say, the office was pretty excited to work amidst such beautiful music!
