ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bert Lams and Fabio Mittino have released a new expression of Gurdjieff's music, entitled "Long Ago". G.I. Gurdjieff's influence has been profound and far reaching over the past hundred years since he emerged in Russia, and later Europe, as a teacher. His work has influenced literature, philosophy, architecture, photography, dance and music in countless ways. It is the music we are interested in here. Transcribed in the 1920's by one of his students, the composer Thomas de Hartman, this is music that was remembered from Gurdjieff's travels as a younger man. His quest for knowledge included archeological expeditions, visits to sacred schools and ancient monasteries. To suggest something about the depth and intent of this music, here is a quote circa 1934 from the architect Frank Lloyd Wright: "(Gurdjieff) developed new rhythms in the dance and new music so designed as to integrate the human faculties and prepare a man for a more harmonious development.." The release from Lams and Mittino is the first time Gurdjieff's music has been arranged for guitar. The result is a masterful recording that is like a living thing. It seems to grow and bloom with repeated listening. There is a great Intricacy and presence in the performance. It is a quality that is familiar from the League of Crafty Guitarists, and from Bert Lams' California Guitar Trio. It matches perfectly with the intent of Gurdjieff's music.

Master Guitarists
Some folks are guitar players, others are guitarists. These two artists are master guitarists. You won’t be disappointed with a single cut on this album.
