TRILOGY by Damir Halilic TOMMY EMMANUEL says: \'Hal is wonderful musician and I admire his dedication to the guitar. I wish him success in his career and would like to see him take his music to the rest of the world.\' \'TRILOGY\' is an extraordinary album. It consists of 36 original songs neatly recorded on 3 individual discs. Each disc highlights a different genre. Many famous musicians contributed to \'TRILOGY\'s\' brilliance - including several world-renowned Nashville stars. -Suzy Bogguss (TONIGHT WE DANCE) added her lovely singing voice. -Legendary guitar ace John Jorgenson (DIO MIO, VELVET) added some guitar magic by doing what he does so well. - J.D. Blair pitched in on drums, and Charlie Chadwick helped out on bass. Jim Horn (sax), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), and Jamie Hartford (guitar, vocals on SOMETHING WRONG). Mike Farris (vocals on WATCH YOU SLEEP) performed and a bunch of other top-tier professionals participated. \'Great music doesn\'t come cheap, and cheap music usually doesn\'t sound very good anyway. Dig a little deeper for this one people - you\'ll be glad you did. It\'s that good!\' -L. Ellison, Houston, TX Disc 1 best fits the AMERICANA category. It contains healthy doses of acoustic blues, country, rock, blugrass, and jazz. These guitar styles are blended tightly together into the perfect fit. Disc 2 flaunts Hal\'s \'fingerstyle\' guitar magic. The sound is similiar to that of a Tommy Emmanuel listening experience, yet noticeably different. The contrast is striking, yet subtle. Seek out the differences and then savor them for a long, long time! The third disc is a sizzling jazz-fusion compilation that deserves to be played over and over and over again. On almost every song, Hal straps on his electric guitar and let's loose like hasn\'t for a long time. HOT! HOTTER!! SCALDING!!! International listeners should know that \'TRILOGY\' is NOT a recording of Croatian folk music. The majority of the songs are sung in English, however, a few are in Croatian. This collection boasts nearly three hours of Americana, fingerstyle acoustic, and jazz fusion guitar music that will leave you begging for more. Like a diamond in the ruff - add this gem to your collection today. Fan feedback: \'This is a "must have" album for all lovers of guitar music.\' -ALAN SMITH, U.K. \'Do yourself a favor. Invest in some high-octane music that will withstand the test of time. Listen to \'TRILOGY\' a couple of times, and then enjoy it for years to come - it\'s sensational!\' -Trevor Taylor, Perth, Australia The resounding success of Damir \'Hal\' Halilic's third CD, \'INFINITY,\' earned him the opportunity to travel to Nashville, TN to record the bulk of his highly-touted follow-up album, \'TRILOGY.\' Released in August 2006, \'TRILOGY\' was recorded in several cities around the world and is one of Croatia's most extensive projects to date. Damir Halilic, more casually known as \'Hal\' (pronounced 'Hall' in English), is a professional musician from Rijeka, Croatia. Hal has published four critically-acclaimed albums to date. Hal has played and collaborated with many of the world's top guitarists (Tommy Emmanuel, Muriel Anderson, Clive Carroll, John Jorgenson). Over the years, these artists have expressed their deep appreciation for his music and hold his work in high regard. Over recent years, a great deal of Hal's music has received airplay on radio stations around the world. At various times, his music has been heard over the airwaves in the United States, Australia, and Europe. This hard-earned recognition came after he performed several stellar live tours abroad. Most recently, Hal has gained notoriety for his concert-organizing abilities on the Croatian circuit, the crown jewel being his self-named extravaganza, \'Hal's All-Star Guitar Festival,\' which has become an annual event and created in cooperation with the city government of Rijeka. This year\'s event will take place in April 2007 and will host the likes of Beppe Gambetta, Don Ross, Clive Carroll, and Michael Langer among others. DID YOU KNOW?
