Trifield Guitar Project, New Virtuoso Trio, Readies Debut Album "Montana Suite"
Los Angeles, CA (Top40 Charts/ BFM Digital) New virtuoso trio Trifield Guitar Project is readying its debut album "Montana Suite," a genre-defying guitar tour-de-force available worldwide Aug. 26, 2013 on Trifield Guitar Project Label.

Canadian classical guitarist Karl Marino, Israeli blues/rock guitarist Rami Halperin and American-born jazz/rock guitarist Alexander Sill met by chance last summer in Montana at the Crown of the Continent Guitar Festival, an invite-only workshop for guitarists. Excited by their unique chemistry, the trio set to work on "Montana Suite" with New Zealand-born bassist Ben Shepherd and drummer Wesley Ritenour, son of jazz guitar legend Lee Ritenour. Grammy-winner Neil Citron recorded the album.

The centerpiece of "Montana Suite" is its title track, a 15-minute longform composition written for the group's forthcoming performance at The Crown of the Continent Guitar Festival on Aug. 27. Other performers at the festival include Pat Metheny and Robben Ford.

"Montana Suite" also features other new compositions from the group's members, and a rendition of Ralph Towner and John Abercrombie's formidable "Juggler's Etude."

Proceeds from "Montana Suite" CD sales will be donated to Crown of the Continent Guitar Foundation, which provides scholarships to the weeklong Crown of the Continent Guitar Festival workshop for Montana guitar students and teachers, and supports other nonprofit organizations dedicated to preserving the natural wonders of Northwest Montana.
