Special EFX featuring Chieli Minucci (with special guest Gerald Veasley) boasts 5 of the most accomplished, and daring musicians in contemporary jazz. Led by guitarist/composer Chieli Minucci, Grammy nominated Special EFX was co-founded in 1982. The group created what would become a signature sound that blended world rhythms with contemporary jazz. In addition to recording, Minucci became a composer for television and film industries, winning three Emmy Awards and garnering 10 nominations for his composition work. With nearly 30 record releases, 2018 sees Minucci marking the 35th anniversary of Special EFX with the release of the third single from the 2017 chart-topping DEEP AS THE NIGHT.
