Earl Klugh In Concert: A Recent Show

Here’s an entire concert by Earl Klugh to enjoy. The length is 1 hour and 17 minutes so you might want to skip some of the talking parts (or not). I’ve always liked Earl’s playing- mainly because he’s so smooth… and all those cool jazz riff and lines.. all on the acoustic…

Here’s what’s said about earl Klugh and this video over at YouTube:

“Grammy-winning guitarist Earl Klugh will perform solo in tribute to his hero, Chet Atkins, in the closing weeks of the special exhibition Chet Atkins: Certified Guitar Player. Renowned for his sweet tone and his mastery of the acoustic guitar, Klugh ranks as one of the world’s finest guitarists. He was barely a teen in Detroit when he was awestruck by seeing Atkins play guitar on television. “Chet’s playing cast a long shadow on my whole life,” Klugh said of his late friend. After meeting in the late 1970s, Klugh and Atkins collaborated frequently. “Earl can wail with the best,” Atkins told Guitar Player magazine, “but he prefers to touch people emotionally. He reaches your heart with that romantic special something.” Presented in support of the exhibit Chet Atkins: Certified Guitar Player, made possible by the Gretsch Company.” read more
