The Rippingtons, whose first lineup included future contemporary Jazz superstars Dave Koz, Kenny G and David Benoit, dominated the instrumental and urban Jazz landscape from the late ‘80s on with their often exotically titled hit recordings, including Kilimanjaro, Tourist in Paradise and Welcome to the St. James Club.
The Rippingtons 2009 tour kicks off in the spring.
Modern Art is out on CD & digitally March 10th via Peak Records.
