"Is It You?" was one of the tracks from Lee Ritenour's 1981 jazz album "Rit", featuring vocals from Eric Tagg. It became a crossover hit reaching number fifteen on the pop chart and number twenty-seven on the soul chart. Lee Mack 'Captain Fingers' Ritenour is a guitarist, recording artist, composer and producer. He began his career at the age of 16 and has appeared on over 3000 sessions, recorded over 40 albums, and has charted over 30 instrumental and vocal contemporary jazz hits since 1976. Ritenour is considered to be a pioneer in the contemporary jazz and jazz-funk genres of music. Ritenour was born January 11, 1952 in Los Angeles, California. He played his first session when he was 16 with The Mamas & The Papas and given the moniker 'Captain Fingers' because of his manual dexterity on the guitar. His prolific career includes a Grammy Award for the collaborative work "Harlequin" (1985), and 17 other Grammy nominations. Ritenour also holds the distinction of having two of the promotional videos for his songs "Is It You?" and "Mr. Briefcase" being played during MTV's first day. Ritenour has been at the top of many guitar polls throughout the world. Throughout his career, Ritenour has experimented with different styles of music. A true fusionist, he has often incorporated elements of funk, pop, rock, blues, Brazilian and classical music with jazz. This channel is dedicated to the classic jazz music you've loved for years.
