This originally ran on October 15, 2013.

Smooth jazz guitarist Jeff Golub has been recording since 1988, but got most of his early notice with the band Avenue Blue, with whom he’s recorded several albums, the eponymous first album in 1994, Naked City in 1996, and Nightlife in 1997. He’s recorded nine solo albums, the latest one being Train Keeps A-Rolling, with British keyboardist Brian Auger, released this past August. Jeff’s website is at

Today’s first selection is “Simple Pleasures,” from 2005’s Temptation, featuring Rick Braun on trumpet.

Our second selection is “Droptop,” from 2000’s Dangerous Curves.

Jeff passed away on January 1, 2015, from a rare brain disease, progressive supranuclear palsy. May he rest in peace.

  1. Oh my…what a shame that he died so young. I become so sad when someone is so talented and dies way too young. The music, not my style, is great and he was quite talented


    1. His was a relatively recent departure from this mortal plane; I hadn’t heard anything until I started reworking that post. Hard to imagine.
