HandPicked is already getting rave reviews!:

“It’s been a long time since we heard Klugh this way, almost totally solo, taking an intimate look at music he loves from across the spectrum. His graceful yet inventive playing, the clean production, and a canny choice of material make HandPicked one of the finest recordings in his catalog.”
~All Music Guide

 

““A class act since emerging as a class-A guitarist almost 40 years ago, Klugh never fails to amaze. Along with his own work, Klugh has played with artists such as Stevie Wonder, Miles Davis, Jimmy Buffett, Chick Corea and others. Safe to say, an evening experiencing Klugh in concert is one that will remain in the ol’ memory vault for months and even years to come.””
~Pollstar

 

“A musical autobiography of emotional depth and artistic maturity…this is arguably the finest Earl Klugh release to date. Never one to rest on his laurels and easily sidestepping the musical complacency that has tripped up similar artists, HandPicked should easily make most ‘Best Of…’ lists for 2013.””
