Product Notes

SQUAT GUITARIST RELEASES FIRST SOLO ALBUM! Trey Wright, guitarist for the Athens/Atlanta based jazz band Squat and jazz studies instructor at the Atlanta Institute of Music, Kennesaw State University, LaGrange College, and the University of Georgia, will be releasing his first solo CD, Where I'm Calling From in mid-February 2006. The CD release shows are scheduled for Friday, February 17 at Flicker Theatre in Athens, and Saturday, February 18 at the 5 Spot in Atlanta. Recorded July 6-10, 2005 at Trey's home studio in Decatur GA, Where I'm Calling From includes 2 solo guitar pieces along with performances by the Trey Wright Trio featuring drummer Marlon Patton (Heavy Mojo, Gunnison, Grogus) and upright bassist Scott Smith (faculty member of LaGrange College and GSU). Other guests on the CD include tenor saxophonist and Blue Canoe recording artist E.J. Hughes, alto saxophonist Mace Hibbard (faculty member of GSU), trombonist Kevin Hyde (Grogus, Gunnison, performances with Widespread Panic and the Derek Trucks Band), and Squat bassist Carl Lindberg on Djembe. The CD was mixed by Randy Hoexter and mastered by Alex Lowe at Red Tuxedo Studios. Along with a cover of Nick Drake's "River Man", the CD features 10 original compositions inspired by and composed during trips to Eugene and Portland Oregon in the summer of 2003 and winter of 2005. Many of the compositions have become staples at the Trio's monthly performances at the 5 Spot in Little 5 Points in Atlanta. Musically, the CD combines elements of traditional jazz with more contemporary influences including Radiohead and Nick Drake. In the style of other jazz CDs by Jim Hall and Brad Mehldau, Where I'm Calling From combines classical and modern aesthetics into a new refreshing approach to jazz. According to Trey, "I wanted to record a CD of my own material to showcase the songs I had written in Oregon. The instrumentation and arrangement is unique in each song and not every song needed solos .'
