New Album From Guitarist Aleksi Glick, World Traveler



World Traveler, the new album from guitarist and composer Aleksi Glick, straddles several genres with his dynamic trio while remaining true to his distinct musical voice and vision.

Glick shows his depth as a guitarist, equally adept at delivering subtle melodies and blistering solos. His strength as a composer lies in his ability to create something new with the already familiar, giving his pieces a timeless feel. Featuring nine originals and one cover, the music moves seamlessly from Jazz to Blues, Americana to R&B, and Bossa Nova to Soul. Many of the compositions on World Traveler were inspired by Glick’s travels, including a few unusual places: a picturesque bench in a Japanese garden, the side of a road in Finland, a stoop in the middle of New Orleans, a seemingly mundane layover at an airport, and a rooftop in sunny LA, to name a few. Glick is joined by bassist Jeff Koch and drummer Nathan Ellman-Bell with guest appearances by vocalist Laureana (Olivia Chindamo), keyboardist and producer Adam Ahuja, and saxophonist Eric Trudel.
