Legendary jazz/fusion guitarist Lee Ritenour released a few-oriented albums, “Rit” in 1981, “Rit 2” in 1982 plus “Banded Together” in 1984. All these records were absolute treats for quality pop lovers. One song, “Is It You” from “Rit,” reached the top 15 on Billboard’s Hot 100. “Rit 2” maintains the same ingredients as its predecessor, a well-dosed mix of elegant pop/soul moments with a strong jazzy flavor and a couple of classy instrumentals.
