From Gregg Belisle-chi: "KOI is very near and dear to me. Tim Berne has long been a hero of mine and, upon moving to New York, was one of my bucket list collaborators. I'm elated to be releasing this record of his music, produced by him and David Torn (who also mixed and mastered it beautifully.)
This record is a brand new endeavor for me: a collection of solo acoustic guitar renditions of his masterful compositions. I remember hearing "forage," Matt Mitchell's breathtaking solo piano record of Tim's music, in 2017 and thinking to myself "Goddam, wouldn't it be amazing if a guitar player did this too?" I didn't expect that guitarist to be me, but with Tim's blessing and guidance, we were able to make it happen...and I think it turned out extremely well.
All in all, this record is a dream come true: collaborating with Tim, having a recording enhanced by David Torn, album art designed by the one and only Steve Byram."
What more could I ask for?
Your support! Buy a CD or two! Share the Bandcamp page with your friends. I'd love for as many people to hear this record as possible. I'm so proud.
I hope you enjoy the journey of listening as much as I enjoyed the journey of playing.

A very interesting album. At a few places I keep asking myself: Was this composed by Arnold Schönberg (or his disciples)? Anyway, I'm all for skilled musicians exploring the boundary (if one exists) between jazz and classical. Thumbs up! jyrki63
