The three talented members of the California Guitar Trio met in 1987 at a guitar workshop taught by Robert Fripp. Like Fripp, the CGT favors a trebly, textured sound and expresses its unity in complex but sweet fugues that fuse elements of pop, jazz, Americana, world music, and other diverse sounds. This 10-year retrospective begins with "Yamanashi Blues," (the title track from their highly acclaimed first album) in which acoustic guitars imitate kotos and mirror the relentless beauty of Mt. Fuji. Other selections display the trio's awesome technical skills. "Pathways," another title track from a much-beloved album, rocks mightily despite having no drums and then segues into an intense classical-derived number. Other CGT favorites here include the vaguely sinister "Happy Time in Fun Town" and three-fifths of the furious "Train To Lamy" suite. For the uninitiated, this retrospective is good place to start.
