Since Grammy-winner Earl Klugh released his inaugural album in 1976, the Detroit-born master of the acoustic-classical guitar has become one of the most imitated icons of the instrument. He has released over 40 records, 24 of which have been on Billboard’s top-10 list of jazz albums, and 6 of which have made it to the #1 slot. Klugh’s recordings have received 13 Grammy nominations. This concert at MCG Jazz will feature Klugh’s favorite standards, influences, and collaborations from throughout his illustrious career.
