Album Notes
Circle is a modern jazz recording, featuring an electric guitar trio performing mostly original compositions. Playing on the album with Matthew are the extraordinary talents Ric Fierabracci (Chick Corea) on bass, and drummers Walter Rodriguez and Cougar Estrada (Los Lobos).

Fluid technical command, natural expressivity and a remarkable versatility distinguish guitarist Matthew Greif, who has performed internationally. Matthew is the newest member of the Grammy-winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet. He has performed and/or recorded with a wide range of musicians, including classical guitarist Scott Tennant and the legendary Chet Atkins. Previously, Matthew was a member of the Falla Guitar Trio.

Henry Netzer

The very best of jazz fusion
This is one of the very best of guitar oriented jazz fusion that I have heard.
The original compositions are engaging and refreshing; all the playing is excellent.

Annette Köhler

Great CD for people who like this kind of music.
Well, I'm not really a fan of this kind of music. But it's my fault that I don't understand this music, not the artist's fault. Matt plays VERY well and it's a great CD.
