EARL KLUGH INTERVIEW
Earl Klugh Interview
(Originally aired on August 1, 2013)
With his impeccable phrasing, rich tone, and deep sense of swing, Grammy Award-winning Earl Klugh merges the usually disparate worlds of jazz and classical guitar. It's rare to hear the American jazz repertoire interpreted on nylon-string guitar, but that's what Klugh has been doing since he was a boy.
Klugh's new album, HandPicked, consists primarily of solo guitar performances, and in our exclusive interview he describes arranging and recording this masterpiece and how this music relates to his early training on piano. We'll hear selections from HandPicked throughout our feature.
