Thirteen compositions from Trey's catalog, plus a bonus transcriptions of his parts from the King Crimson piece "The ConstruKction of Light." Beautifully spiral bound in a 12"x9" text.
I have just launched an Indiegogo campaign to get funds together to produce a score book of my compositions. Full scores with tabs in both 4ths and 5ths versions of the tuning. Including a very special version of King Crimson's "The ConstruKction of Light."
This has been in the back of my mind for many, many years; and now, it is finally coming to birth."

A new preforming group that I am honored to be a part of has just begun announcing shows for our fall tour.
Michael Manring, Trey Gunn, Alonso Arreola
Three Below is a collective evolution in sound, style and substance surrounding the electric bass. Anyone familiar with the name Trey Gunn knows his innovation in touch instrument technology. Throughout his twenty-year collaborations with guitar legend Robert Fripp and King Crimson, Gunn has become an uncompromising, relentless risk taker pushing the touch instruments to new heights. Michael Manring, a student of the late bass legend Jaco Pastorius and creator of the Hyperbass – with its unique altered tuning system – is another unparalleled pioneer of the electric bass. Rounding out this masterful trio is Mexican bass virtuoso Alonso Arreola, whose advanced percussive sensibilities solidify this perfect musical trifecta.
Second show added: Portland, OR -- Alberta Rose Theater -- October 8, 2014 PORTLAND TICKETS
My friend Sonya Lea and I regularly get together to tear apart our creative lives and compare notes. She recently recorded a conversation/interview with me about identity and I ended up delving into the particulars of my musical life. Much deeper than I thought. Which is what happens with Sonya. This is part of the work she is pursuing for her book about identity shifts.
From a letter I sent out to my coaching clients 2.15.2014
This post references a recommendation I made about a composer's workshop in NYC led by trumpeter Dave Douglas.

Great freed back from Alec who made it to the second day of Dave Douglas' workshop in NYC. I had a hunch that Dave's vibe would resonate with some of us here. Dave's sense, and practice, of putting intention into a single, simple line goes well beyond his genre and beyond most musicians I know.
I have probably mentioned this before, but I will again.
