StLJN Saturday Video Showcase:
The guitarists of Guitars & Saxes 2010

This week, let's take a look at some video clips featuring guitarists Jeff Golub and Peter White, the two men doing the six-string thing for this year's edition of the long running smooth jazz package tour Guitars and Saxes. They'll be at The Pageant on Friday, August 13, along with saxophonists Gerald Albright and Kirk Whalum, who played in the St. Louis area together last year at the Ameristar Casino's Bottleneck Blues Bar during their "Sax for Stax" tour.

Up above, you can see Golub playing his version of the Average White Band's 1970s funk hit "Pick Up the Pieces." Down below, White tackles the Isley Brothers "Who's That Lady" at a November 2007 gig in Tokyo, aided by saxophonist Mindi Abair, keyboard player Gregg Karukas, bassist Stan Sargeant and drummer Eric Valentine.

The third clip shows Golub performing "Dangerous Curves" on the 2008 Guitars and Saxes tour with Albright, saxophonist Jessy J and keyboardist Jeff Lorber. The fourth and final video is "Bullseye," another selection from White's Tokyo show.
