First Course is the debut album by jazz guitarist Lee Ritenour. The album was released on LP by Epic Records in 1976 and on CD by Columbia Records in 1990. First Course was made when Ritenour was considered the best session musician in Los Angeles next to guitarist Larry Carlton. He recorded the album with peers from Dante's and the Baked Potato club in Studio City, California.

In the first flush of a blossoming career as a first-call studio guitarist, Ritenour set out to become a solo artist as well in this artifact of the early . He rounded up some of his pals from the Baked Potato club in Studio City - including the archetypical funk drummer Harvey Mason, keyboardists Dave Grusin and Patrice Rushen and horn stalwarts like Tom Scott, Chuck Findley and Frank Rosolino.

Lee Ritenour - First C. .has been added to your Cart. First Course took a little longer than i like but they personalized a hand signed thank you letter. Thought that was great. This album sounds almost audiophile - and it should. Recorded between September and December 1975 in Epic's Sound Labs studios in Hollywood and employing top session players of the time allied with the Production skills of SKIP DRINKWATER - this is a beautifully produced album - slick, expertly played and Steely Dan polished. The instrumentation sound on this is glorious.

Fine debut by Lee Ritenour. Lots of grooves powered by Harvey Mason's heavy drum work. Dave Grusin adds plenty of electricity on the 'boards.. Louis Johnson makes his presence felt on "Sweet Syncopation" and "Caterpillar" with Chuck Rainey getting it on on all other cuts save for the opener and closers. Tom Scott lays down his trademark sound on several cuts. Jerry Peters' "Canticle for the Universe" is the highlight of this set with Ritenour layering the intensity from beginning to end. Though its his first album, his finest jazz-rock work.
