About the Album

Amparo is a romantic and rhythmic mix of timeless melodies from Classical and South American music. Lee Ritenour and Dave Grusin are two legendary musicians primarily known for their work in Jazz but also known by a broader musical community in Classical crossover, film scores, instrumental and adult music. Guest stars that include Joshua Bell, Chris Botti, Renée Fleming and James Taylor.

The lone holdover guest from the first project is opera great Renée Fleming, whose wordless transcendence blends magically with violinist Joshua Bell on a dreamy Gabriel Fauré piece
