Doug Munro

Doug Munro - The Blue Lady - 1995 - CMG

“Doug Munro…well he can flat out play!” - Dr. Lonnie Smith

“Doug Munro is one of the finest guitarists I've heard perform. His music is great to listen to, very entertaining, funky, danceable, not to mention his straight ahead groove. Doug is just GREAT!!!” - Melvin Sparks

"Doug Munro plays in the tradition, but he has his own voice, combining elements of mainstream jazz guitar, Brazilian bossa nova and classical music. He has a great sound and swings with authority. I always enjoy playing with him." - John Stowell

" In sum, Munro displays a hip musicality where discipline, audacity and an ebullient sense of joie de vivre co-mingle with devilish glee. Great Stuff!" - Chuck Berg Jazz Times

Guitarist Doug Munro's trio set is well-rounded, ranging from funky struts and a blues ("The Blue Lady") to a calypso ("Mambo De Peg") and the chord changes of "I Got Rhythm" ("Put Through Changes"). Munro, the dominant soloist on every selection, sounds a lot like John Scofield in spots, if a touch more rock-oriented. Although his distorted tone is probably not for all jazz listeners, the guitarist's improvisations (which are creative within the structure of the pieces) are rewarding and show a lot of talent. Bassist Will Lee and drummer Will Calhoun are excellent in support of what is very much Doug Munro's show. © Scott Yanow © 2013 Rovi Corp | All Rights Reserved
