Rarely will you hear the words "explosive" "tender," and "hypnotic" all used
simultaneously to describe the same sound. But critics and fans agree there
doesn't seem to be any other way to explain a Trey Gunn listening experience.
Gunn, the Warr Touch Guitar playing virtuoso of King Crimson and The Trey
Gunn Band, continues to amaze his audiences time and time again with his
lulling melodies and furious deep grooves.
Tower Records Pulse magazine says "King Crimson sideman steps out with a bit
of hard-hitting esoterica." Bass Player magazine says of their music "big,
bad bass ostinatos, slinky odd-time signatures, and percussion from every
corner of the globe are the basis of these otherworldly soundscapes." And the
LA Jazz Scene called the band's live show "the ultimate balance of power and
symmetry. Gunn and cohorts gracefully interspersed rock, funk, ambient, and
world beat elements with the precision of a Swiss watchmaker."
Joined by multi-percussionist Bob Muller, guitarist Tony Geballe, and second
Warr Guitarist Joe Mendelson, Gunn has finally captured the band in it's true
essence -- pushed to the edge in front of a live audience, raw and bursting
"Live Encounter", an enhanced-CD that also includes live Quicktime footage
of the band, was assembled and mixed in between Gunn's summer tour with King
Crimson on a double-bill with Tool. The release of this live CD will be
followed by North American and Japanese tours.
