CALIFORNIA GUITAR TRIO `CG3 + 2' (Inside Out) 2002 (advance - out 30 Sep)

This band are made-up of guitarists Bert Lams, Hideyo Moriya and Paul Richards. All have worked previously with Robert Fripp (King Crimson). Joining them on this album are Tony Levin and drummer Pat Mastelotto, both of whom have been previously been in King Crimson.

The Latino flavoured `Melrose Avenue' gets things underway, with some lovely acoustic guitar. Yes' `Heart of the Sunrise' gets a run out in a very different arrangement, but it works very well in this instrumental style. The instrumentation on this CD is first rate - check out 'Dance of Maya' or 'Blockhead'. There is even some blues based music on 'Swampy Space' and 'Swampy Returns'.

A great instrumental album , covering many bases - jazz, acoustic, rock, blues and Latin amongst others. A good CD to unwind to or as driving music. I would imagine in a live context these tunes would take on a whole new life.
