On his latest CD, “A Very Gypsy Christmas” Doug demonstrates his long standing love affair with the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Greppelli with 15 of the swingingest Gypsy Jazz versions of Christmas favorites you’ve ever heard.

The CD features special guests swing clarinet king Ken Peplowski, rising vocal star Cyrille-Aimee Daudel, and violinist Howie Bujese.

Big Boss Bossa Nova 2.0

Big Boss Bossa Nova 2.0

Guitarist Doug Munro follows up his critically acclaimed 2004 Big Boss Bossa Nova recording with his
new Big Boss Bossa Nova 2.0. Doug describes this second addition as "more of a bare bones session...". This
sparkling, live to CD recording, features Doug at his best in an intimate trio setting. The personnel featured on
the recording, bassist Michael Goetz and drummers Jay Devlin and Jason Anderson, are Doug's working group,
who together have logged many years of playing time. The group sound captured on this recording is often
lacking in many of today's "superstar bands" which are put together in the studio just to make a recording.
Also present here, as always, are the intricate rhythmic riffs and intriguing improvisations that are a hallmark of
Doug's playing

Program: Spain • Bemsha Swing • Sticks N’ Stones • Devil’s Haircut • Blue Seven •
A Day At The Races • Little Sunflower • Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum • Something I Heard • Prayer

Big Boss Bossa Nova

Big Boss Bossa Nova

“Big Boss Bossa Nova” is just what the title implies -
An ebullient, up-beat affair that features the work of Palmetto recording
artists Javon Jackson and Ray Vega who,
along with bassist Harvie S and drummer Richie
Morales, lend a distinctive salsa flair to the proceedings.
“Stella by Starlight,” “Low Rider,” and
“Milestones,” along with eight original Munro
compositions are all rendered in what Munro
describes as his “slightly twisted take on the
Bossa Nova and Samba.”
Program:
Stella by Starlight • Black Phoenix • Confessions of a Liar • A Song for Sonny • When No One’s Lookin’ • Low Rider • Mi Perrito • Milestones • Sometimes You Just Have to Sneak Around • One Night in Havana • The Girl With The Long Tassled Hair

Blueness

Blueness

Blueness is Doug’s third album for CMG and his first with ii V I, his touring band. The ii V I moniker, or minor to dominant to tonic is the cornerstone of Jazz improvisation. It conjures up the changes patterned on the traditional standards from Gershwin, Porter, Kern, Rodgers & Hart, but the offerings here are mostly bop meets funk. A lot of the tunes are modally based and provide Doug and ii V I with a road map to lay down some outside (the tonal center) lines. Doug’s playing is laden with clichés, but they are of his own creation, imprinting the listener with an indelible impression of his maverick style. He employs motifs and repetitive shapes and forms, moving them up and down the neck in minor thirds and fourths, a la John Coltrane. There’s lots of intervallic leaps, unpredictable twists and turns, dripping with a high-speed chorus effect. Many of his phrases are pregnant with distorted and exaggerated tension.

Up Against It

by Doug Munro

Doug Munro and ii-v-i Up Against It

This is Doug’s second recording with his organ trio ii-v-i. This CD documents the growth of the trio and the addition of drum virtuoso Jason Anderson. Organist Jerry Z and Doug continue their remarkable interplay with this recording. They have been performing regularly for close to 4 years now and it shows in the tightness and emotive flow been them. Hear what the critics have been saying about this group.

from Just Jazz Guitar

With precious little overdubbing, Doug's slightly distorted guitar twists and winds its way through the predominatly self-written set, at times reminding you of his neighbors' Scofield and Frissel or sometimes Kessel or Hendrix. ...some knockout guitar playing.

from Alternate Music Press

Munro personifies competence; he's an excellent technician, knowlegeable and versatile; he's one of the most original guitarists to emerge in the past 25 years. His improvisation is economical and earthy. This is a gloriously life-affirming band., balancing individual freedom with cooperative playing in some of the most riveting new music I've heard in quite a while. – Ben Kettlewell

from Jazz Times

…complelling jazz that never irritates, bores or grates on one’s ears. The group is together and tight, with Munro’s playing a perfect match with Jerry Z’s; the two work as well together as coffee and cream, with plenty of sky high playing and improvisation. -David Zych

from 2oth Century Guitar Magazine

If you’ve dug the recent R&B based projects from John Scofield’s band, I think you’ll dig Doug’s groove. Personally, Munro’s my first pick! - Jim Fisch
