GORAN IVANOVIC – GORAN IVANOVIC TRIO
This late 2015 effort is much more than the sum of its parts. Ivanovic, a Chicago-based, Croatia-born nylon-string guitarist, is no newcomer to the music business as the former child prodigy has an accomplished career melding Balkan folk pieces with his own brand of Spanish and Latin American music. With his three-piece trio featuring Matt Ulery on bass and Pete Tashjian of drums, their self-titled debut is guaranteed to amaze, even after repeated listening. Elements of fusion, and folk/Latin music are blended in an innovative and challenging way. Try “Alvorada Americama” and “Sick Puppy” the sample the band’s power.
