"This is the "real deal"... Music you'll enjoy over and over for it's freshness of spirit and sustaining respect for "the moment." -- Ron Rolland, Chicago
Jazz Guitarist Dan McIntyre's new CD is titled HOURGLASS, and the elements of time and form dominate his first CD release as a leader. A Chicago area native and veteran of countless concerts, club dates and recordings McIntyre has created his own sound. His musical guitar heroes include Wes Montgomery, Herb Ellis, Barney Kessell and Joe Pass. Over the past 20 years Dan has played with Frank Sinatra Jr., Diahann Carroll, Della Reese and Diane Shuur.
Joining Dan on HOURGLASS are veteran players Dennis Luxion-piano, Nick Schneider-bass, Phil Gratteau-drums and Alejo Poveda-percussion.
On HOURGLASS, Dan's chosen recorded repertoire includes chestnuts such as Paul Desmond's "Wendy" and Ellington's "Sophisticated Lady", along with smooth latin treatments of "Bluesette" by Toots Thielemans and "Waters of March" by Jobim. The title track "Hourglass" is a McIntyre original composition.
Southport Records continues to create new music from Chicago for a world market. We appreciate your support and time!
