Do It Again

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
Everyone is allowed to indulge in some honest nostalgia now and again, and here it’s Jeff Golub’s turn. The acclaimed smooth-jazz guitarist returns to some of his favorite tunes from the '60s and '70s, rejuvenating them with contemporary arrangements and his own razor-sharp playing. It doesn’t hurt that Golub has terrific taste: His picks from the past include James Brown’s “Cold Sweat,” Marvin Gaye’s “Mercy Mercy Me,” Teddy Pendergrass’s “Turn Off the Lights,” the Average White Band’s “Cut the Cake,” and Stevie Wonder's “Jesus Children of America.” (The inclusion of Eddie Harris’s “Cold Duck Time” displays the guitarists’s hip leanings when it comes to vintage jazz ...

Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
Everyone is allowed to indulge in some honest nostalgia now and again, and here it’s Jeff Golub’s turn. The acclaimed smooth-jazz guitarist returns to some of his favorite tunes from the '60s and '70s, rejuvenating them with contemporary arrangements and his own razor-sharp playing.

A soulful and subtle player, Golub rides a groove with ease, integrating his slick picking into a tune rather than dominating it. He also knows how to get nice and mellow: Hear his tasty licks on the remake of Smokey Robinson’s “Cruisin’ ” and Van Morrison’s “Crazy Love.” In all, a look back that doesn’t get mired in the past.
All Music Guide - Paula Edelstein
The unparalleled art form of jazz is best defined by the musical legacies of its master artists. But a small handful of smooth jazz guitarists, including Jeff Golub, make every riff count and have made their own meaningful contributions by capturing its essence in a variety of styles. On this second outing titled Do It Again, the contemporary jazz favorite surrounds himself with a group of smooth jazz stars to update timeless tracks made famous by such soul artists as Eddie Harris, Teddy Pendergrass, and James Brown. The former lead guitarist for Rod Stewart performs with trumpeter Rick Braun and the chart-topping saxophonists Richard Elliot and Gerald Albright, among others, and gets the listener's groove on with Smoky Robinson's "Cruisin'," and Stevie Wonder's "Jesus Children of America." Their spirited remakes are earthy and sensual, yet fun and funky, and is a great opportunity to discover new talent and enjoy old favorites.
