ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"CHINA ROSE is one of the best CDs I've received in a long time! It has the wonderfully rare flair of Asian music, and great guitar riffs." --DJ Dave Oldham, WQFS radio

"I have become a huge fan of this disc. It combines clever themes, compositional theory, and technical wit. This album is unforgettable in many ways and its melodies that are truly memorable." --Joshua Turner, critic, richardkolp.com

"On his latest effort with Guitar Garden, leader Pete Prown's guitar work blends...Asian music within the context of hip-hop grooves and ethnic beats." --Robert Silverstein, MP3e.com

"Upon several listens to China Rose, I found the guitar playing on par with the California Guitar Trio. I’ve enjoyed some of the best representative works of the World Progressive genre and Guitar Garden is one of the top ranking, in my opinion. I can’t recommend this enough." --Ron Fuchs, www.prognaut.com

"China Rose is fresh, passionate, and dynamic, a fragrant blend of Asian-fusion grooves, lounge-pop, and soulful lead guitar." --Out-Smart Magazine

"China Rose is intended to showcase the work of two extraordinarily talented guitarists. The real question is whether guitarists Pete Prown and Rich Maloof can play guitar. The answer is a resounding 'YES!'" --Splendid.com

Guitar Garden's music has been featured on NPR's "MORNING EDITION" radio program, and has received countless rave reviews from critics across the country.

The atmospheric sound of CHINA ROSE features contemporary World Progressive music blended with soulful guitar solos, heavy keyboards, and Asian melodies, providing this CD with a breakthrough instrumental sound.

Fans of Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd, Genesis, the Flower Kings, and Chinese classical composer Tan Dun will revel in the atmospheric quality of the music, which features deep grooves and orchestral keyboard pads, in addition to ripping guitar work. Of his guitar approach, leader Pete Prown notes, "Besides the traditional acoustic and electric guitars that we play on the album, I sometimes use guitar synthesizers at times to create unique sounds," he adds. "Listen to 'Cloudburst,' where the main solo features acoustic guitar and acoustic piano in perfect unison.

The CD also features master acoustic-fingerstyle guitarist, Rich Maloof, who contributes great solos to "Erhu" and "China Rose," among others. Various tracks also feature the talents of bassist Brett Bottomley, percussionist John Gannon and keyboardist Steve Puglia.

For Prown's *blistering* electric-guitar solos, cue up "Green Mountains" or the pulsating groove of "Ashes of the Pagoda."

In all, Guitar Garden's CHINA ROSE CD contains nine tracks of passionate and dynamic World Progressive music. With soul.

A striking combination of guitars and inventive keyboard parts...
China Rose is fresh, passionate, and dynamic, a fragrant blend of Asian-fusion grooves, lounge-pop, and soulful lead guitar. A striking combination of guitars and inventive keyboard parts runs throughout China Rose, in addition to the catchy hip-hop inflected grooves and ethnic beats propelling each instrument.

...An intriguing new spin on the wide ranging possibilities of Asian-Fusion musi
On his latest effort with Guitar Garden, leader Pete Prown’s guitar work blends a variety of Asian music motifs within the context of hip-hop grooves and ethnic beats. With titles like “Erhu” and “Ashes Of The Pagoda”, the sound of China Rose moves traditional Asian music melodies into the world of easy on the ears jazz-rock with excellent results. Eschewing daredevil guitar pyrotechnics in favor of a soulful, tastefully played ambient world beat guitar groove, Prown and company puts an intriguing new spin on the wide ranging possibilities of Asian fusion music.

A beautiful, contemporary arrangement of eclectic styles...
What happens when you fuse Asian music, pop, and gnarly lead guitars? “China Rose” happens. A beautiful contemporary arrangement of eclectic styles that seemingly fit without seeming forced one bit also happens. GuitarGarden is primarily the work of multi-instrumentalist Pete Prown who’s always possessed something special in the guitar realm. In addition to his guitar prowess, “China Rose” also finds him playing keyboard, and guitar synthesizer as well as sampling. In addition the former editor-in-chief of Guitar magazine Rich Maloof puts his talent where his mouth is with his collaborations on acoustic and electric guitars as well as harmonica.
