Terceto Kali – Terceto Kali
One of the albums that has been in my music rotation this past week while on vacation on Long Beach
Island in NJ was the latest the self-titled debut album from a three-man trio Terceto Kali. The trio led by virtuoso flamenco guitarist Jason McGuire “El Rubio, plays a blend of flamenco, Latin and jazz rooted in a variety of musical genres. Prior to the release of this debut album the band was billed as The Jason McGuire Trio. Either way, if you are a fan of flamenco guitar, oh hell, if you are a fan of guitar playing, you are going to love this album! Throughout the album, “El Rubio” lives up to his billing as a virtuoso guitarist!
What Other Are Saying About Terceto Kali
“Rhythms, tonalities and modulations rich, complex and tasty. Rock-solid bass support, hugely inventive percussion, guitar of virtuoso agility. I’ve known Jason and his work for a long time. But, it’s as if he and his musicians locked themselves in the studio and came out months or years later, masters of a new jazz-flamenco jazz, genuinely fused, not welded, and sparking with energy. As I have with Terceto Kali, meet the new Jason McGuire “El Rubio” and the trio.”
– Douglas Rankin, President Emeritus, Irvine Barclay Theatre, Producer, New World Flamenco Festival
Terceto Kali is one of the most rewarding albums in recent memory thanks to Jason McGuire’s compositional skills in blending so many various styles always with a view to creating something intelligent and creative, emotional and accessible. The trio of McGuire, Paul Martin Sounder and Marlon Aldana are on an odyssey of musical discovery and innovation and “El Rubio” is their Odysseus.
