Grammy-winning jazz guitarist Lee Ritenour will soon release his first studio album in five years and his first fully solo album ever.

To date, Ritenour has recorded 45 albums and earned 16 Grammy nominations. But Dreamcatcher marks the first time the guitar master has made a record entirely on his own.

“People have been telling me for years: ‘Rit, you gotta make a solo guitar record,’” Ritenour explains. “In the past, I’ve always been the band guy, the ensemble guy, the collaborative guitar player guy. So this was the one project I hadn’t done. And this year, I knew it was time.”

In addition to his extensive and highly regarded body of work as a bandleader and composer, Ritenour’s catalogue includes thousands of sessions with legends such as Frank Sinatra, Pink Floyd, B.B. King and Tony Bennett.

Dreamcatcher will be released Dec. 4. In the meantime, Ritenour has shared two tracks you can hear right now.
