Album Notes
Pete Gitlin is a guitarist and composer who is finding a new style of music that combines influences as widely diverse as Pat Metheny, Steely Dan and the Beatles to create something fresh and beautiful. His first full-length CD, Full Circle and the Great Temptation, features melodic guitar set among incredible performance by some of the top smooth jazz musicians in the country. Adding their talents to this project are such stellar performers as Jeff Kashiwa (The Rippingtons) on sax, Michael Broening (George Benson and Al Jarreau) on keyboards, Mel Brown (Wayman Tisdale and Eric Darius) on bass and Rachel Eckroth on vocals and keyboards.

Produced by John Herrera of the legendary Arizona-based band Turning Point (who also handles all drums, percussion and loops), the CD mixes funk with haunting melodies, and features two songs (Golden Love Light and Sunshine Days) with great vocals. Take a listen to music that surely will be spinning on your CD or MP3 player of choice for years to come!

SmoothJazz.com Review
An exciting discovery from Phoenix, Arizona musician and songwriter Pete Gitlin who’s gathering kudos and accolades from all over. We heard him on MySpace and insisted that he send over FULL CIRCLE AND THE GREAT TEMPTATION and fell in love with his unique brand of “Alternative Jazz.” The folks over at CDBABY have blessed the release with an Editor’s Pick (no small task if you consider how many new releases they pour over) and radio is just starting to swoon as this well-crafted, exceptionally produced recording lands on music programmers desks. The project features a guest performance from sax man, Jeff Kashiwa as well as support from bassist Mel Brown (Wayman Tisdale, Eric Darius), Michael Broening (George Benson, Al Jareau) and it’s produced by Turning Point’s John Herrera. Plus, we’re really enjoying the two killer vocals: Rachel Eckroth on “Golden Love Light” and Jodi Light on “Sunshine Days.” So what makes this Alt Jazz? There’s a progressive and contemporary side to Pete’s music… it incorporates cool elements of pop, chill, Americana, as well as headier jazz and rich melodies. The title refers to the struggle to do what’s right according to the artist’s liner notes, “and a universe which rewards us when we do.” In considering that, I’d say Pete’s in for some bounty!
