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
