Lee Ritenour to Release Blu-Ray This Week

‘Overtime’ contains nearly three hours of music

Lee Ritenour will release Overtime (Eagle Rock), a nearly three-hour Blu-Ray, this Tuesday, June 19. The guitarist recorded the program in a studio in Burbank, Calif., in DTS-HD Master Audio and LPCM Stereo sound, and it was filmed in high-definition.

Ritenour’s set list runs from a cover of the Temptations’ “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” to a Brazilian samba to jazz-rock fusion, with songs culled from 1977’s Captain Fingers, 1978’s Captain’s Journey, 1981’s Rit, 1988’s Festival, 1992’s Wes Bound and 2003’s Twist of Motown.
