New York, March 12, 2010 - CTA Records has released a new album by guitarist and composer Rale Micic entitled 3, which explores interaction between Micic’s musical roots in Serbia and his extensive knowledge of Jazz, with his trio consisting of New York’s hottest rhythm section, bassist Scott Colley and drummer Gregory Hutchinson.
"Micic is bringing an intriguing new perspective to the jazz guitar" wrote Don Heckman in LA Times.
The album "3" has many compelling facets of Micic’s music, from its effortless ingenuity to his intelligent way of extending expectations in jazz. From the groove inspired "Dealin" to swinging "The World Doesn’t End" the music is never overpowering, but always imaginative and fresh. "Serbology", one of Micic’s more popular tunes, also features two Serbian percussionists playing traditional instruments, tarabuka and tapan. These instruments were made specifically for this session by a well known percussion maker in south of Macedonia.
"The New York jazz scene, and by extension jazz’s modern mainstream, has Rale Micic to thank for a portion of its continued growth" wrote Jim Santella in All About Jazz. Album is available at www.ctarecords.com as well as all major online stores including iTunes and Amazon. For more info visit www.ralemicic.com.
