For nearly three decades, Lee Ritenour has been one of the world's foremost light jazz artists. Mixing a smooth urban vibe with the occasional soul/funk jive, his efforts have attempted to walk the razor-thin tightrope between the avant-garde and the accessible. In 2004, the gifted guitarist decided to call together a collection of colleagues and former band mates, and make an album celebrating music from the process of "making," not marketing. Assembling such luminaries as pianist Dave Grusin; keyboardist Patrice Rushen; talented bass impresarios Anthony Jackson, Melvin Davis, and Dave Carpenter, and drummer Oscar Seaton, the first foundation was set. Then, in collaboration with vocalists, percussionists, and an array of brass and woodwinds maestros, the resulting work, an album called Overtime, became a kind of sonic statement, a chance for a longtime journeyman in the jazz trade to teach a contemporary audience about the joys of jamming and the artistry in improvisation. The CD version of this venture contained a mere portion of what was actually performed. This new DVD release from Eagle Eye Media, a HD presentation recorded live at the Enterprise Studios in Los Angeles, expands the running time and fleshes out the song list. The result is a soothing, comforting journey through cool cat swing with just an occasional hint of R&B bravado.
It has to be said upfront that many purists find artists like Ritenour to be the very antithesis of the jazz ethic. While mining the vast catalog of creativity for their copycat conceits, they bring very little to the genre by way of invention. Sure, the ability to pluck out a saucy solo while listening to impossibly complex chord changes requires skill and creative fire, yet Ritenour and his ilk are often compared to poseurs, pretending to be what their betters—like recognized great Wes Montgomery—were before them. Obviously, if you are one of these dour distinction makers, you'll be steering clear of this project upon hearing the name of the organizer, but others less in tune with the tradition of jazz will probably enjoy this free and breezy performance piece. Ritenour is not out to rewrite the rulebook or change the perception of instrumental music in the eyes of the converted. No, he wants to expand the aural horizons of those who may not be initiated in the free-form facets of the American musical art form and create delicate, detailed tapestries of sound and symbiosis. As his fingers lightly run the frets of his shimmering, glossy guitar, a kind of ambient aura is created, sudden bursts of music mixing with each other to form a solid body of brave, often beautiful, harmonics.
