NICHOLAS MEIER INFINITY
NICHOLAS MEIER (gt), JIMMY HASLIP (db), VINNIE COLAIUTA (dm)
On his latest effort, INFINITY, Meier enlists the help of bassist Jimmy Haslip and drummer Vinnie Colaluta to serve as the foundational pieces for his delightfully divergent paths. It takes strong musicians to tackle a variety of styles, and these two perform beautifully. The album features eleven songs which showcase Meier's adaptability and ability to create his own style. The music transports listeners to places all over the world, using elements of Middle-Eastern music as well as more familiar European elements from his own background. Through this, Meier provides compelling, convincing evidence that he's one of today's most accomplished and visionary guitarists.
