Towner/Muthspiel/Grigoryan: Travel Guide

Ralph Towner of the world-jazz group Oregon is perhaps the best known of these three guitarists (Towner, Wolfgang Muthspiel and Slava Grigoryan), but this ensemble is a true collaboration. While the more famous guitar trio of Mclaughlin/Di Meola/De Lucia displayed overwhelming speed and virtuosity, Towner/Muthspiel/Grigoryan keep things, for the most part, quietly lyrical, with plenty of space for things to breathe.  Towner and Muthspiel split the compositional duties down the middle, and all three contribute equally to the sound.  Despite being a guitar trio, there's plenty of sonic variation, with Towner's distinctive 12-string and classical stylings, Muthspiel's gentle electric guitar and Grigoryan's classical and baritone guitars.  Standout tracks include "Duende" by Towner and "Die Blaue Stunde" (The Blue Hours) and "Nico and Mithra" by Muthspiel. This is a beautiful album that bears repeated listening.

In addition to being available on CD, this album is always available for borrowing from the hoopla digital library.
