The Waters, They Are Rising - Trey Gunn >>> available now

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.

Modulator receiving fantastic reviews

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.
