No matter what particular style of Jazz that you love, you must know the name Jeff Golub.  Always respected as a soulfully adept guitarist,  the past few years have virtually kept his name on the marquee.  Not for the usual reasons...but let's go back in time.

Copley, Ohio - near Akron - was the place where Jeff was raised.  He loved the early inspiration of Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimi Hendrix.  Then, he got heavily involved in the Blues: Muddy and Buddy and anybody named King :)

In his teens, he was turned onto Wes Montgomery - and stayed turned on.  He got a chance to attend Berklee - then moved to New York.  How awesome to get work with Billy Squier - seven albums and three world tours.  

And he also worked with Rod Stewart - from 1988 to 1995.  Another four albums and five world tours.  During that time, Jeff turned out his first solo album.  Some dozen later, he's cooking with a new kind of gas.  And here's why...

Jeff was presented with a challenge in 2011 that has stayed with him - once sighted, he is now blind.  And in 2012, there was an accident that was due to the newness of his condition.  Let me tell you how this bird flew.  Surpassing even his OWN expectations, Jeff Golub has stunned us with one of those CDS that get buzz from jump: teaming with Brian Auger, "Train Keeps A Rolling" defies simple categorization...you can call it contemporary Jazz if you choose - but it's Blues-infused, funky, fabulous and fun.  You get one of the best in guitar and pair him with the best on Hammond B-3 - plus past members of the Oblivion Express - and you are bound to see your name in lights.  AGAIN.

The magnificently courageous and stone-cold inspiring Jeff Golub joins us at three p.m. on 8/20/2013.  First time on Skype - & we expect surprise guests!
