Harry Warren was the first major American song composer to write primarily for film. Every song on this CD is from a movie (except for the two songs I wrote). All of this music (except Nagasaki 1928) is from the 1930’s and 40’s. The songs are arranged in the hot swing style made popular by the great guitarist Django Reinhardt with violinist Stephane Grappelli and the Hot Club de Paris. The main body of work from Django Reinhardt is from the same time period. It was an easy marriage of styles taken from the same point in history on two different continents.

I’ve worked, on and off, for 3 years to refine the concept, pick the songs, write the arrangements and record/film the music. The music was recorded live in four sessions with four different groups. We recorded a lot of songs, 16 of which are presented here. I hope you enjoy listening to this recording as much as I’ve enjoyed making it.

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

Blueness
  • Blueness
In cart Not available Out of stock
$10.99

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

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
