Album Notes
The Guys are at it "AGAIN." This is Second in a series of "Live Room" Recording by the Trio. They just set up in the studio and started calling tunes "just like a live gig;" totally improvised with no over dubs or fixes. The only editing is the order the tunes are presented on the CD.

Rick Whitehead was guitarist and featured soloist for "The Airmen of Note" for 22 years.While with the band, he toured all over the U.S. and overseas, recorded on more than 30 albums and CDs and worked with many prominent Jazz vocalists and Musicians including: Sarah Vaughn, Joe Williams, Billy Taylor, & Louis Bellson. Now retired from the Air Force, he works as a free lance musician and teaches Jazz Guitar at Shenandoah University in Virginia.

John Previti, a native of Maryland and DC, played Bass with Danny Gatton from 1976 until the guitarist's death in 1994. Besides working with Rick, he is a very sought after Bassist in the DC Area.

Barry Hart was also a member of the Danny Gatton group.He also has worked with many notable musicians in the DC area and is one of the busiest drummers in town; doing free lance recording sessions as well as live performances.

very impressive
This is an excellent jazz guitar CD that shows how good Rick Whitehead is. Rick has awesome technique but it does not overshadow the music. I now want to buy the first Live in Captivity CD. The whole band is impressive and I really enjoy listening to this music.

As a native of the DC area, I had the opportunity to grow up listening to and taking lessons with Rick when he was a member of the “Airmen of Note” – the touring Jazz Band of the US Air Force.

It’s worth noting that the sidemen in the Rick Whitehead Trio are the same guys who backed up Danny Gatton, another DC guitar icon, before his passing. Barry Hart, John Previti and Rick bring a wealth of experience to the table and it certainly shines in this, as well as their other CD recordings.

“Live in Captivity - Again” was recorded ‘live’ in the studio. The guys were somewhat isolated, but could see each other and as such, it captures well the experience of hearing them in live performance.

Rick’s guitar lines are fast and clean. He’s a top-notch guitarist who’s got hundreds of tunes in his head and can blaze away on all of them. Rick and his Trio truly deserve wider recognition.

I hope through these recordings he will be brought to the attention of a bigger audience.
