Andrew York is one of today's most visible and innovative classical guitar composers, and a former member of the GRAMMY winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet. Andrew’s new recording Centerpeace, a collaboration with Allaudin Mathieu, Mitsuko Kado and Andy Summers is series of free improvisations on piano and guitar. Master improviser, recorded in Sebstapol in one evening, during a steady rainstorm, which lent a certain evocative mood to the session. Half the CD will be free improv with Allaudin. His discography includes “California Breeze,” a new recording for Sony Japan, three solo CD's for the GSP label, ten CD’s with the LAGQ on Delos, Sony and Telarc labels, as well as inclusion on Rhino Records ”Legends of Guitar” and numerous other compilations.
