Seminal contemporary jazz super group Special EFX marks their 35th year of recording and touring in 2017 with the release of Deep As The Night, their 21st studio recording, and first celebrating their recent partnership with the Trippin ‘N’ Rhythm record label. Formed in 1982 the as the brainchild of the duo of guitarist Chieli Minucci and percussionist George Jinda, the combination of Chieli’s edgy & melodic driving style and George’s sense for temperament and rhythm struck a perfect balance, and the rise of a distinctive new and original sound that incorporated heavy percussive world elements fused with smart, energetic, playful and memorable guitar lines was formed.

With the untimely passing of George Jinda, Minucci made the decision to carry on as George would have wanted it and continue what they had started when they signed as one of the very first groups to join the startup GRP Record label which went on to become the preeminent contemporary jazz record labels of the late 80’s, 90’s and beyond. Deep As The Night marks a reuniting some 25 yrs. later with label executive Jeff Lunt, who was in part responsible for wooing the band away from GRP in the early 90’s and signing them to the JVC Music record label and a new beginning for the band who would go on to record three classic records.
