Christoph Neuhaus Trio - Matter of Three (2014)

Source & Label: Unit Records

After the successful release of his Debut CD "Directions", with the Christoph Neuhaus Quintet feat. Adrian Mears (UNIT Records) in 2013, which featured only original compositions, the South Germany based guitarist Christoph Neuhaus and his trio exclusively present interpretations and arrangements of standard material and compositions by other contemporary composers on the new Album "Matter of Three", his sophomore release on UNIT Records.

-To develop a new, fresh and own approach to well known musical material, integrate the rich tradition at the same time and present all this in the classical guitar trio format has always been a great desire and challenge for me - says Neuhaus and adds:
-In this lineup the guitar has a very special responsibility and I'm grateful to be able to realize this project with such wonderful and top-class musicians.

It is rare that a young artist strikes such a perfect balance between chops and taste. Christoph Neuhaus does so in very empathetic company on his outstanding sophomore release ¦"Matter of Three" Bill Milkowski
