Poetic guitar trio music prformed with emotion and soul from the international, Icelandic guitarist Andrés Thor on both acoustic and electric guitars

Andrés Thor is considered by critics to be one of Iceland´s finest jazz guitarist of his generation. His music combines the eloquence of the guitar-led jazz tradition with a zesty, rock-imbued drive. When it comes to guitaritsts, Andrés is clearly inspired by Jim Hall, John Scofield and Pat Metheny, but bands like Led Zeppelin, Doors and musicians like Jimi Hendrix and John Coltrane has left its mark on Andrés Thor´s music
Hereby is Andrés 7th album release:
The chordal approach is apparent from the outset, exposed in the title track's main theme; Hall's -- famously -- ever-so-slightly turned up amplifier tone is at least partially responsible for Andrés' subtle electric guitar sound on „Spor' and maybe even encouraged the guitarist to switch to an acoustic instrument on „Summer Night' and „December Cucumber'. It is in Andrés' soloing that the motif-based concept shines through, as he constructs frameworks through varying melodic configurations, connecting complementing fragments to a greater whole. His remarkable fretwork is on full display during the mid-tempo swinger „Teabreeze', and even when veiled by a thick chorus-effect on „Whisper', there can be no doubt where Andrés' melodic loyalties lie.
Nico Moreaux and Magnús Trygvason Eliassen are sensitive accompanists, who delicately co-sculpt Andrés' nine originals. And, while the predecessors who informed the guitarist's music are discernable, on Hereby Andrés has merged their voices into a new entity of its own. One that provokes all sort of comparisons, and is all the more compelling for it.
