To classify this world class guitar trio as simply instrumental music doesn't come close to doing the band justice. Here you will find many styles of music, effortlessly blended together into a totally unique live experience. From the minimalist strains of songs like “Portland Rain”, to exciting and intricate flamenco stylings, and everything between contemporary crunchy guitar to classical guitar styles, from gypsy to jazz, you never know what to expect from one song to the next. Then, just when you think that maybe you ARE getting a feel for the overall sound of the show, they hit you with a song which defies categorization with its creative writing.
In space, CGT’s music was played to wake the astronauts aboard the NASA space shuttle “Endeavor”. Here on Earth, the trio’s music has been featured extensively on NPR, NBC’s Olympics coverage, and various CBS, CNN, and ESPN TV programs.
Their performances astounding, and diversity unparalleled, these three revered musicians are not actually natives of the "Golden State." The California Guitar Trio (CGT) is Bert Lams from Belgium, Hideyo Moriya from Japan, and Paul Richards from Utah. Together, their technical wizardry is breathtaking, as is the wide range of instrumental music the group renders... everything from unique originals to dazzling, cleverly-arranged interpretations of jazz, classical music, and even surf rock.
Since their inception in 1991, the Trio has released 12 CDs: seven studio albums (including a Christmas record), four live releases (including An Opening Act from their 1995 worldwide tour with King Crimson) and the recent compilation Highlights, featuring their most popular original works as well classics from Bach’s "Toccata and Fugue" and Beethoven's 9th to Chantays' "Pipeline" and Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." On screen, CGT can be seen in documentary Following the Music: On The Road w/ California Guitar Trio (©2004 Stone Chapel Films) and the new Hi-Def multi-camera shoot of an intimate house concert in 2009.
