A Great Album

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was my introduction to Lee's music, and in many ways, to Jazz itself. As a fledgling guitarist, prior to buying this album I was caught up in the Rock n Roll scene along with all the other young guitar players that I knew at that time -- each of us trying to mimic Eddie Van Halen's riffs. "Rit" changed all of that for me. From the very first listen, I recognized the true talent of this gifted musician and gained an appreciation for the great production work of the recording as well. Some twenty-five years later, the production and record quality of this album still stacks up well against current releases. "Rit" had just enough of an edge to it so that I, a young Rock enthusiast, didn't dismiss it outright as "elevator musak". Once I gave it a chance, I was blown away by the technical skill of this guy and the degree of expression he was able to conjure up on his instrument. It is no exaggeration to say that this album single-handedly set a new standard for me and changed the direction of my musical interests. It made Jazz accessible and relevant to me, and opened the door to other styles of Jazz and artists whom I would never have heard of if not for its influince. Of course, today I own other CD's by Lee, which I enjoy very much, but "Rit" is still my favorite."
Great tunes by great player.
