A Twist of Rit is Lee Ritenour’s new 2015 Concord Records release. A star-studded band performs a number of new compositions combining with fresh, “twisted” versions of some of his earliest funky, fusion material from the 70s and early 80s. Combining some of the hottest rhythm players out there, including Ron Bruner Jr., Chris Coleman, Dave Weckl, Melvin Davis, Paulinho Da Costa, Michael Thompson, John Beasley, Patrice Rushen, and Dave Grusin with a five piece Horn Section and Ernie Watts on tenor sax, A Twist of Rit will make for one of his most special releases to date.

It features Lee’s soaring guitar lines with 12 of his compositions ranging from the funky fusion and sophisticated jazz that Lee has become so well known for. All of the sessions were captured by his long time Grammy award-winning engineer Don Murray and the tracks were recorded with everyone performing together, old-school, but with the state-of-the-art recording techniques of 2015. Also included in this record, will be the debut of guitarist, Tony Pusztai, from Hungary, who was the grand prize winner in Lee Ritenour’s 2014 “Six String Theory Competition” He was selected from over 500 entries and 72 participating countries.
