Vernon Reid

Overview

Gtrobliq (“Guitar Oblique”) is an avant-jazz, superstar lineup. This guitar trio features Elliot Sharp, Vernon Reid (Living Color), and David Torn (Polytown, Jan Garbarek Quartet, Bill Bruford, Lou Reed’s the Everyman Band etc.). Experimental, ambient, and multi-layered, the work of this trio is an otherworldly headspace untethered by a rhythm section. An exploration of dissonance and melody, effected guitars, and the interaction of the dissimilar, this trio’s work is an impressive free-guitar alchemy from three of the instrument’s most prolific and innovative players.
