Earl Klugh - Solo Fingerstyle Jazz Guitar Master!
Compiled & Edited By Steven Herron

 As Featured On EzineArticles

    Earl Klugh was born in Detroit, Michigan on September 16, 1953. When he was 10 years old, he first studied the piano and then began to play the guitar. His first interest was in folk guitar music. When Klugh was 13 he heard some recordings by Chet Atkins and suddenly realized the complete harmonic and melodic capability of the guitar. This discovery was boosted when he heard the solo jazz guitar artistry of George Van Eps, Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Charlie Byrd, and Laurindo Almeida.

    While teaching the guitar in a music studio in Detroit, Earl was heard by saxophonist Yusef Lateef. Lateef was so taken by the 16 year old playing jazz on a nylon string concert classical guitar that he asked him to sit in with his group at the local Baker's Keyboard Lounge. He then included Klugh on his Atlantic Records CD "Suite 16".

    The following year Earl Klugh met George Benson in Baker's Lounge. Like Lateef, Benson was captivated by Klugh's jazz approach on the concert classical guitar. They worked out some duets together and in 1973 Klugh joined Benson's new quartet. This was the start of a long and close relationship between the two guitarists. They recorded two albums together on the CTI record label.

    Earl was then asked by Chick Corea to join his popular "Return to Forever" group - but this time on electric guitar. He played concerts and recorded for two months with this famous jazz rock group which featured bassist Stanley Clarke and drummer Lenny White. Following this, Klugh performed with vocalist Flora Purim and pianist George Shearing. This gave him valuable experience playing with a variety of top jazz artists.

 Earl Klugh Plays "Cast Your Fate To The Wind"

    Ever since that time Earl Klugh has gone on to become one of the most successful fingerstyle jazz guitarists of the day. Although some of his recordings are in a commercial vein, his current trio recordings with acoustic bass and drums show that he is a very skilled and imaginative jazz artist with a unique approach to playing instrumental renditions of jazz and pop standards on a classical guitar!

    His music has actually been called everything from pop/jazz and crossover to fusion and smooth, but in fact Earl Klugh is a melodic acoustic guitar player with a beautiful tone who decides to play on a nylon string classical guitar. He has regularly stated that he does not view himself as a jazz guitarist and he feels that his primary influence on guitar is Chet Atkins. Having discovered his own approach and sound early on, Earl has continued to be consistent throughout his professional career earning the respect of other guitar players and music critics alike and still performs frequently at jazz clubs and festivals.
