Sly Guitar, the new John Ellis CD is now available in the shop. It will have an official release in May 2013 through Gonzo Multimedia distribution but pre-release copies are available from this site.
Chanoyu Records is a new label created to release the music of UK guitarist/composer John Ellis. SLY GUITAR is the latest release by John. His work as a guitarist has been compared with artists such as Robert Fripp and Fred Frith. If you are interested in modern guitar music, this is the place for you. Copies of SLY GUITAR are now available from this site.
“The moody soloing on “Infanta” could easily have come off one of Andy Summers’ and Robert Fripp’s well-known collaborative albums, Bewitched and I Advance Masked from the early eighties. “Pedalo” would actually fit rather well on a late-period King Crimson album.” From a review by ‘Make your own taste’.
