Chieli Minucci

For 14 years (1982-1996), guitarist Chieli Minucci was half of the popular world fusion band Special EFX, forming a musical partnership with percussionist George Jinda and creating accessible yet slightly unusual music. Minucci attended Ithaca College, playing guitar in a variety of rock and pop groups, and had developed his own approach to the guitar when he met up with Jinda in 1982. Their band recorded extensively with GRP (1984-1992) and also made three CDs for JVC (1993-1995) before finally breaking up. In the 1980s and '90s, Minucci also worked as a producer and writer for other musicians including Deborah Henson-Conant and Kim Pensyl, and he worked in the studios. Minucci appeared on a variety of R&B dates by the likes of Chaka Khan, Roberta Flack, Noel Pointer, and Angela Bofill and began his solo career in 1995, cutting three CDs as a leader without Jinda for JVC during 1995-1997. Since that time, Minucci has continued to release albums, some of which include Sweet on You in 2000, Night Grooves in 2003, and Sweet Surrender in 2007. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

So beautiful...
Absolute sunrise on a cloudy day!
Love it
Wow!!
turn this up and drive
I love this song
Not finding fault, just a typo. It's Ithaca College, not Ithica. I went there, as a guitar major, from 1970-1972. Plus it's only 60 miles from where I've lived most of my life.
like that style/i can ride with that
like his grove
Very Nice!!!
love his style of play
He is great! My first time and I hooked

This guy is awesome
Really sorry to hear about George Jinda and his lose to diabetic coma.Chieli is a great guitarist .Special EFX was/is a great blend of jazz music.RIP George.
Chieli when he partnered with George or as a solor artist is a force to be reckoned with on the guitar! He can PLAY!
takes me back to the 80's! Love it!
First song I heard Special EFX do was Sambuca Nights and I was HOOKED! My favorite from Chieli is "Anything and Everything."
Got me groovin at work! Nice
what a bet just love it
very good guitarist
The reason for George Jinda's abscence was a diabetic coma, which he was in for several years. There was hope he would recover, but he never did, and eventually died. That is why Special EFX still listed him as a band member.

This Guy really JAMS........ . . . . . .
First time - Nice style - He definitely has the chops. I'm going to check out some of his music.
Yeah ! Check out Chieli on the dvd with Special Efx - smokin' ! Long Island boy makes good !
I began hearing his music on another service that is no more. It would be great if Pandora could add a few more discs, especially Renaissance. Some great tracks on that one!
