On his latest CTA Records release entitled Serbia, Rale Micic establishes himself as one of the most inventive voices on the music scene today. With support from the trumpet great, Tom Harrell, who caught onto Rale's talents early on, music just seems to unfold, grounded in Micic's vision. Born and raised in Belgrade, Serbia, guitarist and composer Rale Micic has come a long way - from a young boy struggling to have his music heard on the European jazz scene to being one of the most original guitarists in New York City today. With his debut album 'Bridges' released on CTA Records in 2003, Rale Micic created cult-like following among music fans with his mix of jazz and haunting melodies from the Balkans. He recently signed an endorsement deal with D'Addario strings, joining the likes of guitarists Pat Metheny, John Scofield and Lenny Kravitz.
