Shine Shine Shine
Jon Herington is a noted guitarist, singer/songwriter and producer from New York City. His follow-up to 'Like So' is called 'shine (shine shine),' available at cdbaby.com and on iTunes. Great support is supplied by a no-nonsense, take-care-of-business band including Dennis Espantman on bass, Rob Morsberger and Jim Beard on keyboards, Frank Pagano on drums. Since late 1999, Jon has been the guitarist of choice with Steely Dan for both recording and touring. Jon has also toured with Donald Fagen, Boz Scaggs, Bette Midler, the Jim Beard group, The Blue Nile, Phoebe Snow, Madeleine Peyroux, saxophonist Bill Evans, the contemporary jazz superband Chroma, Lucy Kaplansky (of Cry, Cry, Cry), jazz/blues organ great Jack McDuff, and most recently with the Dukes of September, a supergroup with Donald Fagen, Boz Scaggs, and Michael McDonald. ESC Records has recently released Jon's 'Pulse and Cadence,' a remastered and retitled instrumental recording from 1992 which features eight of his own compositions as well as the brilliant playing of keyboardist Jim Beard, bassist Victor Bailey, drummer Peter Erskine, and percussionist Arto Tuncboyacian. Some of Jon's recording highlights (aside from 'Like So' and 'Pulse and Cadence') are the newest Walter Becker release, 'Circus Money;' the newest Donald Fagen release, 'Morph the Cat;' the Steely Dan albums 'Two Against Nature' (Grammy Award Winner) and 'Everything Must Go;' Jim Beard's four recordings (co-produced by Jon); two Bill Evans records, 'Escape' and 'Starfish and the Moon;' Michael 'Patches' Stewart's 'Penetration;' Bob Berg's 'Riddles' and 'Virtual Reality;' Lucy Kaplansky's '10 Year Night;' Michael Brecker's 'Now You See It...(Now You Don't); ' Randy Brecker's 'Toe to Toe;' Victor Bailey's 'Bottoms Up;' Chroma's 'Music on the Edge' (with Mike Stern and others); Rob Morsberger's 'The End of Physics,' 'Relativity [Blues],' 'A Periodic Rush of Waves,' and 'The Chronicle of a Literal Man;' and Lynne Robyn's 'Red Bird in Snow,' one of Jon's production efforts. Jon can also be seen on Steely Dan's live video and DVD and is featured on the 'Making of Aja' video/DVD, from the brilliant Classic Albums series. Jon's current work remains a combination of free-lancing as a guitarist and producer in New York, song-writing and band-leading work with his own group, and world-wide touring in support of some of the world's most renowned musical artists.
