Chieli Minucci will shortly be releasing his first DVD.
Smooth jazz guitarist Chieli Minucci has just wrapped up video editing for an upcoming DVD that features Chieli and his veteran band called Special EFX. The DVD is not taken from a show � instead, the footage comes from a live studio recording in June from Toronto.
The DVD, which is untitled at this point, will be released in the enhanced, high-definition format. The songs, which are taken from Special EFX and also Chieli�s solo albums, include �Courageous Cats� from the Jewels CD; �Speak to Me� from Masterpiece; �Daybreak� from Global Village; �Cause We�ve Ended as Lovers� from Renaissance; �Cruise Control� from Butterfly; and a medley of �Still Waiting/Jewels Part 2� from Jewels and the current CD called Got It Goin� On.
"I wanted to capture what my band has been doing live onstage," Minucci says. "At this point, when people come to see us perform live, it�s a combination of Chieli Minucci songs and Special EFX songs all kind of medley-ed together."
The DVD will be released by Shanachie early in 2006.
