A Christmas Album
Review by Steve Alspach
There's something to be said for Christmas and tradition. Trimming the tree, eggnog, or whatever else it entails; Christmas is a time to indulge in tradition.

California Guitar Trio - Live in Chicago October 26th, 2001
Review by Steve Alspach
The California Guitar Trio made another stop at Martyr's in Chicago on October 26. For almost an hour and a half Paul Richards, Bert Lams, and Hideyo Moriya played a collection of music as varied as the band's origins (Utah, Belgium, and Japan), yet there was a cohesion throughout the evening's set.

California Guitar Trio - Live in Eugene, OR, 2003
Review by Bob Cooper
After many failed plans to catch the California Guitar Trio in performance, my wait was finally rewarded when they came to Eugene's WOW Hall. As some of you may know, Eugene is a college town where the "hippie era" is still thriving and alive, so I believe I picked the ultimate venue to see these three guitar virtuosos perform for my first CGT show.

Review by Gary Hill
Simplicity versus complexity - it seems the two words are mutually exclusive. However, the California Guitar Trio prove that there are ways in which this is not necessarily true.

Tony Levin - Tony Levin Band - Double Espresso
Review by Gary Hill
Tony Levin and his band tour fairly frequently, bringing their unique show to enthusiastic fans on a regular basis. It wasn't until recently, though, that those fans could have a musical documentation of that group at home.

Tom Griesgraber - Whisper in the Thunder
Review by Gary Hill
Featuring guest appearances by Jerry Marotta, Pat Mastelotto and the California Guitar Trio, and with the fact that Griesgraber's instrument is the Chapman Stick, one might expect this disc to sound like Tony Levin's solo material.
