On Saturday, February 21st, 2004 at 8PM & 10:30PM, the Inter-Media Art Center (IMAC) in Huntington, Long Island will present a concert with jazz guitarist EARL KLUGH.

An acoustic guitarist with a very pretty tone, Earl Klugh was putting the “smooth” into jazz long before there was an official radio format, debuting the light-hearted, easy funk style that’s become his trademark. Klugh thinks of Chet Atkins as being his most important influence. Klugh played on a Yusef Lateef album when he was 15 and gained recognition in 1971 for his contributions to George Benson's “White Rabbit” record. He played regularly with Benson in 1973, was a member of Return to Forever briefly in 1974, and then in the mid-'70s, began recording as a leader. Klugh's popular recordings (for Blue Note, Capitol, Manhattan, and Warner Bros.) tend to use light funk beats, stick closely to the melody, and put the emphasis on his sound.

Over the course of nearly 30 albums, Klugh has not only stuck to his guns in the face of shifting musical trends but has also become, in the modern smooth jazz genre, one of the most imitated acoustic guitar icons. After making a single song appearance on the popular Melrose Place soundtrack, the Detroit native- after a twelve album stint on Warner Brothers Records- joins Windham Hill’s growing roster of veteran jazz great with the long awaited release of Peculiar Situation.
