ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Trey Gunn’s seminal release “The Third Star” – re-mastered with several extra tracks.

In addition to the spectacular re-mastering of the original recordings, six bonus tracks are included on this release. The bonus tracks vary in time and instrumentation. Three are relatively new tracks composed and recorded with Gunn’s current instrument – the Warr Guitar. The other tracks utilize the classic Chapman Stick and were recorded in NYC in between the release of “The Third Star” and Gunn’s first solo record “One Thousand Years.” These pieces showcase his early approach to these tapping instruments.

"Warning! Do not listen to this Trey Gunn record while driving late at night or while operating heavy machinery. A hypnotic-like state may occur and you may be lulled into a trance or might find yourself driving into the sunset until you either run out of gas or out of road, whichever comes first. The sounds on this record are extraordinary!" -- Bass Frontiers

"While some may compare 'The Third Star' to his work with King Crimson, there is a more patient attitude and atmosphere created on this album that maintains an integrity and beauty only found where there is true mastery and creativity. Gunn's got it."

"Gunn's second solo effort since his association with King Crimson is another solid display of smoldering grooves and improvisation against a backdrop of shimmering ambient soundscapes" Progression Magazine

"Trey Gunn is a man dedicated to finding every nuance hidden in his instrument. 'The Third Star' is a deep recording, richly layered with his unique style."
Music Uncovered

"Minimalistic instrumentation, syncopated drumming, unusual female vocal styles and melodies, catchy harmonies, and unique guitar solos strongly characterize this release. The sound is a subtle mix of eccentric rock, noise, and hip-hop. The drums/percussion are one of the strong features in the album, and King Crimson's Pat Mastelotto makes a guest appearance on a couple of tracks. But it is Bob Muller's unique drumming that dominates."
Ram Samudrala
