album komborebi

Our first album – Yamanashi Blues – was recorded in 1991 in Bert Lams’ living room in Hollywood using 3 Ovation guitars.

NOW, 25 years and 14 albums later, we have recorded our newest release – KOMOREBI – in a way that is different from any project we’ve done before! For this recording, we focused on capturing the most natural sound possible from our acoustic guitars. Our studio engineer, Tom Griesgraber, did a lot of research and experimentation with different Neumann microphone configurations. We finally found 3 different set ups that helped us achieve our aim – TO SOUND AS THOUGH THE LISTENER IS SITTING IN THE MIDDLE OF US WHILE WE PLAY!

The Result: Our new album – KOMOREBI (kO-mO-‘re-bE), which, in Japanese, roughly translates to “Sunlight shining through the leaves of trees.” We feel this album literally captures the essence of the word Komorebi – making the SOUND shine through the ’leaves’ of our three guitars! We hope you will agree!

Thank you for joining us in the journey by pre-ordering the album!

From CGT:

The new "All Classical" album is now available on our webstore on CD and MP3 Download.

This album contains several brand new arrangements, and also some previously unreleased versions of CGT classics. Howard Givens did an amazing job on the mix, making this our most "acoustic" album yet. Each of these tracks marks a significant milestone in our 20 years of work together, and though all pieces were recorded in different studios at different times, Howard found a way to make it sound as if you were sitting in the same room with us, sharing the experience.

Tony Levin is featured on 3 tracks playing upright bass and cello. Chicago guitar virtuoso Fareed Haque plays some beautiful classical guitar on an arrangement of Vivaldi's 'Winter'.
