California Guitar Trio

The California Guitar Trio (CGT) celebrates its twentieth anniversary with the release of Andromeda in October 2010 on Innerknot Records. As a special commemoration, the new CGT album will also be released on vinyl through Karate Body Records. “Andromeda represents a culmination of all our work together in the past 20 years,” says guitarist Bert Lams. We have released numerous CDs over the years, but there's none like this one,” Lams continues. “Andromeda is the first album containing nothing but original material, combined with improvised pieces. The integration of structured, thought-out pieces with the loose and spontaneous improvisations is something we've never done before.” The California Guitar Trio is Paul Richards of Salt Lake City, Utah; Bert Lams of Affligem, Belgium; and Hideyo Moriya of Chiba, Japan

California Guitar Trio + Montreal Guitar Trio: In a Landscape

Read "In a Landscape" reviewed by Geno Thackara

The musical territory of In a Landscape doesn't take very long to cover, yet somehow still feels vast. There's a lot of exploring behind everything these two trios do, which is only fitting in light of their globe-spanning origins, not to mention the collective miles they've racked up on the road over the decades. So it's ...

I always say it when recapping every year, and it's been truer than ever for me since I was fortunate to join All About Jazz at the start of 2016: there's always too much great stuff to take in. There are always too many albums we don't get around to during the year and too little ...

California Guitar Trio: Komorebi

Read "Komorebi" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Things come somewhat full circle for the California Guitar Trio on their fifteenth album Komorebi. Having often experimented with all manner of electronics and effects to weave sound textures, here they drift back towards compositions that use their acoustic guitars pure and unadorned. It was made live in a room with a minimal rig, much the ...
