Concord Records will release, a limited-edition, individually numbered Lee Ritenour box set, The Vinyl LP Collection, on April 22. The albums have each been remastered, pressed on audiophile-quality, 180-gram vinyl and restored with original artwork and liner notes. An accompanying 46-page booklet contains new liner notes by Ritenour plus never-before-seen photos and ephemera, all culled from an extensive scrapbook collection lovingly kept by the guitarist’s late father. The Collection contains five classic LPs by Ritenour: Earth Run (1986), Portrait (1987), Festival (1988), Color Rit (1989) and, on vinyl for the first time, the GRAMMY® Award-nominated Wes Bound (1993).
The Vinyl LP Collection includes such personnel as composer Dave Grusin, pianist Alan Broadbent and composer David Foster, plus saxophonist Kenny G and Brazilian artist Caetano Veloso. Pre-order your box set at Lee’s website!
