Entries in Trey Gunn (9)
The new Trey Gunn CD "The Waters, They Are Rising" features heavily on John Shaefer's lastest WNYC broadcast entitled Expansive Guitar-Scapes. Also woven into the flood theme of the program is music by Robert Fripp, Peter Gabriel and David Torn.
This new, boutique release from famed King Crimson alumnus and touch guitar visionary Trey Gunn is a combination of live performances based on Peter Gabriel's piece “Here Comes The Flood” and music for a recent film score. The film (“Every Beautiful Thing”) sees Gunn producing a rare cover tune – a haunting version of Bob Dylan's “Not Dark Yet.” Aside from the sensuous voice of Dylan Nichole Bandy in the opening and closing tracks, the entire recording is made with Gunn's unique touch guitar. The variety of material blends throughout with the water theme of the disc – the first in a series of four recordings each based on different themes. “Flow” for this one. “Gravity” for the next.
Thirteen compositions from Trey's catalog, plus a bonus transcriptions of his parts from the King Crimson piece "The ConstruKction of Light." Beautifully spiral bound in a 12"x9" text.
Transcriptions by Gabriel Riccio
Debut disc from monster guitarist, Matte Henderson. Matte has worked with John Medeski, Screaming Headless Torsos, Henry Kaiser, Natalie Merchant and the late Mick Karn. One part electronica plus one part progressive post-rock, Matte mixes and stirs together an incredible team of players for “The Veneer of Logic”: uber-drummer Marco Minnemann, Tony Levin, David Torn, Pat Mastelotto, Trey Gunn, Mary Pastorius and Doctor Know of Bad Brains.
This is a double-disc set with a DVD of films created for every track.
This retrospective, two-disc set includes over 2 hours of music drawn from Gunn’s catalog. Known for his work with King Crimson and as a pioneer of the touch guitar, Gunn has produced 8 solo recordings. For this dynamic mix of material, Gunn, a much sought after collaborator, has pulled in tracks from numerous artists he has worked with over the years. Music from Russia, Mexico, Italy and Finland is melded with his solo works in this fascinating collection.
Trey Gunn / Marco Minnemann: Modulator Review at PopMatters
Trey Gunn has a name reminiscent of an Old West outlaw. He is also one of current progressive rock’s go-to soundmakers, mainly wielding his Warr guitar (a Chapman Stick-like instrument built to explore notes from bass to guitar range with a tapping technique), touring and performing with the likes of Tool, Brian Eno, and, most famously, prog giants King Crimson, of which he was a member for nine years and four studio albums.
