Lee Ritenour

May 10, 2013

Jazz guitar legend Lee Ritenour put together a world class band for his 2013 tour that stopped in Sioux Falls on April 5 at the Orpheum Theater.  Ritenour was joined by long-time collaborator and 12-time Grammy Award winner Dave Grusin on piano and keyboards, Melvin Davis on 4, 5, 6 & 7 string bass and Sonny Emery on drums.  Ritenour's concert was the final show in the Sioux Falls Jazz and Blues Society's 2012-13 concert series.

Ritenour has been playing the guitar for over 50 years and is a 19-time Grammy Award nominee, having won the award once for his 1985 Brazilian album, "Harlequin," a project on which he worked with Dave Grusin.
