Unusual Guitar Works

On this edition of New Sounds, hear inventive music from the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, with selections from the new CD, "Guitar Heroes." Embracing their roots- both individually and collectively- the quartet pays tribute to jazz, bluegrass, rock and flamenco guitarists who have influenced and inspired them. The pantheon includes Frank Zappa, Hendrix and Michael Hedges; Pat Metheny, Django Reinhart and John McLaughlin; Steve Howe and Ralph Towner, among others. And much more.
