Suhy Silvergold & Alvarado - Tessellations (2015)
The one and only album from this US trio.
The band is Ray Suhy on guitars, Alex Silvergold on drums and Rolando Alvarado on drums.
I have never heard about this trio before and this album is a bit of a surprise.
The music is not exactly my type of music although I like fusion.This though is more jazz than fusion.
There is some avant-garde here too inbetween cascades of jazzy bass, drums and guitars.
The music is pretty intense with a lot of guitars as guitars are the only melodic instrument here.
The quality is pretty good without really winning me over. The music is too technical and too much music for musicians to really become good music.
Nevertheless, it is well worth checking out this album if technical trio based jazz us your thing.
