The tune Erhu was used on a musical interlude on NPR's Morning Edition yesterday. It was a 30 second sample, but I couldn't get the melody and the rhythm out of my head all day. The music on this CD is an interesting combination of New Age, Ambient, Asian, & Smooth Jazz Chill. It's peaceful, hypnotic and haunting. This is definitely something different when you need a change of pace from what you usually listen to.

Guitarist Pete Prown is the architect of GuitarGarden that essentially pours every genre into the eclectic mix of China Rose. As the title would suggest there is a strong Asian influence that is blended with smooth jazz, new age and even hints of soft progressive rock. Yet this very unusual melting pot has both the advantage and disadvantage of being very unique. It makes for a very innovative approach but how do you market the music?

Born In Connecticut, the talents of Prown extend to the guitar, keyboards, bass and also the ability to compose and produce. However, his prowess is most evident while on the guitar. The music presented on China Rose has to be one of the most original fusions of music I have ever heard. Opening with the almost Kitaro influenced "Erhu" the album jumps into a solid bass line overlaid with guitar work that I would associate more with rock than New Age or Smooth Jazz. Though the latter can also be found courtesy of the more restrained "Cloudburst" that are reminiscent of Craig Chaquico or Billy Joe Walker. Even more removed from the New Age genre is the more progressive and fusion riddled "Blue" or "Birds of Paradise" that has Prown flexing his muscle on electric guitar which brings us the paradox of GuitarGarden. Who are they going to appeal to?

While the album has some very inviting quiet passages, in many spots it will be too aggressive for New Age and Ambient purists. Yet for those seeking pulsating electronic music and just good old rock and roll, the album will not be aggressive enough. Nevertheless, the group explores multiple musical genres that make for a very intriguing listening experience.

What a surprise! This GuitarGarden CD somehow mixes World music with progressive guitar playing and the result is brilliant. There are catchy drum beats and lush keyboards blended with really great acoustic and electric guitar parts. I can't stop listening to it!!
