The Riddle

by Guy Strazz (Aka Guy Strazzullo )

Album Notes
This is a pioneering recording in the history of ABC records and Australian Jazz. It is the first successful album that crosses jazz with acoustic global beat music. The main elements being Latin jazz, Indian music, Funk and Indonesian music. Recorded in 1997, the date captures the spontaneity of a power acoustic trio following a tour of Indonesia. The trio went on to do some 180 live performances across Australia. The line up consisting of Guy Strazzullo before he assumed the Alias Guy Strazz on electro acoustic guitars, Steve Hunter on e bass and David Jones on drums, later replaced by Andy Gander.
The Riddle
“…Amazing technique; blindingly fast runs, peppered with exotic scales, pour from his six and eight string acoustic guitars. At times the pace is simply torrid, but elsewhere Strazzullo shows a deeply expressive and almost romantic strain.” Shane Nichols - Australian Financial Review. 1998. This album received an APRA Nomination in 1999.
