Trios / Instrumentals: California Guitar Trio

California Guitar Trio: The Marsh


Forged in the aftermath of a chance meeting at King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp's famous zen-influenced Guitar Craft courses in the late eighties, the California Guitar Trio - comprised of three master musicians from Brussels, Utah, and Tokyo - plays technically challenging yet fluid instrumentals that teeter at the intersection of classical, jazz, surf, rock, world music, bluegrass, and anything else they can get their talented hands on.

This original piece, the lead track from 2004 release Whitewater, is a personal favorite: crisp enough for a movie soundtrack, mellow enough to compliment or even stand in for a soothing massage or a quick recharging dip in the hot tub.
