Title: Jeff Golub - R.I.P.
Post by: danjazzny on March 22, 2015, 04:39:29 AM
On New Year s Day 2015, the music world mourned the death of Jeff Golub. After suffering the loss of his eyesight 3
years earlier, Jeff was diagnosed with PSP, a rare brain disease which rapidly debilitated his entire body and ultimately
robbed him of the ability to play guitar. Knowing that Jeff s playing days were over, three of his closest friends and
musical collaborators, Steven Miller, Rick Braun and Bud Harner dug deep into the Golub vault and uncovered some
rare gems - radically different versions of some of Jeff s early tunes along with 2 songs that were never released.
From there, Jeff handpicked a number of musical friends to add to the recordings and give each song a modern twist and
unique flavor. The Vault was completed just days before Jeff s death and provides a passionate and soulful overview
of one of the music community s most beloved figures.
The Vault has become an All Star Tribute to the genius that was Jeff Golub.
The guests represent the very top echelon of the Smooth Jazz music community. Included in the collection
of unreleased music are such stars as: Dave Koz, Mindi Abair, Kirk Whalum, Rick Braun, Philippe Saisse, Boney
James, Brian Culbertson, Jeff Lorber, Bill Evans, Gerald Albright, Peter White, Richard Elliot and Steve Ferrone.    :(
