What happens when you combine three guitar masters, each with a lifetime of impressive musical experiences, and have them play together for the first time in the wonderful acoustic setting of New York's St. Peter's Church? You have the ideal set of ingredients for an eclectic and original masterpiece.
Larry Coryell formed The Eleventh House, one of fusion's most influential groups in the 1970's and has unleashed his guitar sorcery with everyone from Dizzy Gillespie and Charles Mingus to Randy Brecker and Chico Hamilton. On this, his second Chesky Records release, Larry continues to develop new and exciting ideas as he travels through a musical landscape as one of the pioneers of modern guitar.
One of the most exciting and innovative guitar players performing today is Brazil's Badi Assad. A virtuoso whose technical ability never overshadows the visceral impact of her playing, Assad, is, quite simply, a wonder to behold. On this project Badi exhibits her amazing talents by adding kalimba and copper flute to the mix in addition to her unique mouth and body percussion techniques.
Blending a creative mix of styles in his playing, John Abercrombie is regarded as one of the most influential guitarists of the last 25 years. His style continues to evolve as he has worked with such musicians as Johnny Hammond, Chico Hamilton, Billy Cobham and Dave Holland to name a few.
With our signature high-resolution recording process, Chesky Records captures with amazing sonic clarity, this historic combination of three original styles and creative personalities to bring you one "unforgettable experience."
