USA: Acoustic Alchemy-Thirty Three And A Third (2018)
2018 release. For over three decades the Acoustic Alchemy have been at the forefront of contemporary jazz, even if the band's signature eclectic mix of styles has meant they have never comfortably fit snugly into any one genre; "We've had a lot of labels over the years, at the start there were all these names flying around like new adult contemporary, new age music, and then it became smooth jazz, but we've never really thought about ourselves as being in any one particular genre. We just make music we like." Says Greg, "At the core it's always been about one simple concept: the sound of the nylon and steel guitars working together, but that leaves a lot of scope for exploring all sorts of musical ideas."
