"jazz-rock genius" Chrissie Murray , Jazz UK

"Nobody had heard of Carl Orr until he astonished London on tour with US drum phenomenon Billy Cobham." Jack Massarik, Evening Standard

"... a masterful guitarist"... Musician magazine

".. uncompromisingly original.." Jamie Renton, Straight no Chaser

".. an outstanding guitarist.." Walter Kolosky, allaboutjazz.com

"Orr's fleet-fingeredness and musical imagination, as evidenced by his confident dexterity and intriguing compositions, put him on one of the top shelves of today's guitar and overall musical elite. If there is any artistic justice at all, it is only a matter of time before many more people reach up and grab that particular book, open the pages and discover what they have been missing." Walter Kolosky, author of Power, passion and beauty, the story of the legendary Mahavishnu Orchestra.

"The awesome Carl Orr, one of the true guitar geniuses of our age." Rainlore's World Of Music

Guido Spannocchi's Ahead Only

Guido Spannocchi's Ahead Only

Formed in 2016 around Guido Spannocchi as composer and saxophonist this trio features the talents of Jason Simpson on double bass and Marco Quarantotto on drums.

Influenced by Lee Konitz' trio works and Ornette Coleman's aesthetics their sound is a combination of solid structures and chord changes with various avant garde elements. Deeply embedded in the tradition of songs the compositions reach out to childhood memories of classical music, alpine motives, Austrian, Hungarian, Italian background combined with work songs from Kivu embedding these melodies in the present offering a momentary lookout into a possible future through improvisation.
