California Guitar Trio
The Story
With their technical wizardry and breathtaking fusion of classical music, blues, jazz and country - immersed in the quintessential genre of California surf rock - the California Guitar Trio have earned themselves an enthusiastic community of fans and the respect of many renowned colleagues. Their 2004 release, "Whitewater", features twelve new tracks produced by Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, King Crimson). Both ethereal and blistering, this recording reveals the California Guitar Trio's music in a new light by introducing some amazing electronic treatments while staying true to their warm, analog sound. The Bach Circulation piece on this recording was made using tiny, high-end, binaural microphones in producer Tony Levin's ears, just feet from the three guitars! This is an enhanced CD, with a bonus video of "The Marsh" live in Austin, Texas included that can be accessed from your computer.
