Jazz legends – Dave Grusin and Lee Ritenour in first-ever African collaboration tour

Legendary American composer, pianist and arranger, Dave Grusin is heading to South Africa for his first-ever collaborative tour with acclaimed guitarist, Lee Ritenour on African soil.

The two take to the stage for two rare shows on May 27th and 28th at The Teatro at Montecasino – offering South African fans the opportunity to see these master musicians up-close in a classy, intimate setting.

It is his film and television soundtrack work that has really turned Grusin into a household name and saw him become an Academy Award winner (for The Milagro Beanfield War). It was also Grusin who composed the moving score for the 1989 film, ‘A Dry White Season’ (based on the André Brink’ book) cementing a connection with this country that’s now decades long.

Ritenour is an award-winning US guitarist who has earned the name “Captain Fingers” for his extraordinary ability on the guitar that’s seen him release a raft of solo and collaborative work.
