New West Guitar Group
“Well-orchestrated, cascading six-string work that falls somewhere between Leo Kottke and Pat Metheny, with a nod to the intertwining guitar arrangements of the Allman Brothers Band.” - Jazz Times
Built on a firm jazz foundation with elements of blues, rock, and folk, New West Guitar Group came together at the turn of the twenty-first century at the University of Southern California, where the original members were students in the Thornton School of Music’s Studio/Jazz Guitar Department.
Now featuring master guitarists Perry Smith, John Storie, and Jeff Stein, the group has recorded four albums including its latest, Round Trip Ticket, which reached #28 on the national jazz charts and has been featured on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered. YouTube
