Welcome to GuitarFire



"The Mounting Flames of GUITARFIRE"
GUITARFIRE is spreading throughout the Chicago area, gaining acclaim for smokin’ hot, yet accessible acoustic music with a Mediterranean flavor. The repertoire ranges from jazz and Latin out to world music (Greek, Slavic). You’ll hear originals influenced by virtuoso composers–Corea, Gismonti, Di Meola etc – plus well-known pieces and standards. Experience the passion of elegant arrangements and inspired improvisation! Although the musical reach of Guitarfire spans many decades there is a timelessness and pure acoustic beauty to the sound, from brooding modal chants to Latin rave-ups spiced with pure Habanero!

Their new CD “Guitarfire” showcases the talents of Jeff Burns and Gregory Dobrov in a range of moods from contemplative to exuberant. These original compositions are delivered with a confidence nd bravado that communicate pure joy; and what a thrill, in an acoustic setting, to hear Jerry Goodman (Mahavishnu Orchestra) whose easy grace hides the sophistication of his craft! The trio moves from an intricacy charged with the potential of a coiled spring to floating over a dream-like soundscape.



What some others say:
"I love it, have played one side this week, will do more...I also asked Chuy to add it, it IS that good! " -Alisa @ KCSM, San Mateo-

"Treat for the evening - brilliant music!" -Jacqueline Long-

"Like their name, these guitars are on fire! The sound is ever changing and very vibrant it's great dancing music. Some songs make me feel like I'm in Ireland, some Spain, some France and some Italy. Each song has a part I love and want to keep replaying over and over. I highly recommend it!" -Sandra Simovic-

"The production values on this CD are excellent. The musicianship on this CD is just phenomenal. These guys have loads of technique as well as a superb feel for the notes. The songs cover such a range of emotion... from languid to frantic to contemplative to fiery to ethereal and more. The players shift from mood to mood with an effortlessness that is sheer, laugh out loud delight. Dobrov and Burns are exquisite guitar players, while Jerry Goodman's legendary reputation, dating all the way back to his days with John McLaughlin and Mahavishnu, is well-deserved. These guys -- Goodman, Dobrov and Burns -- ARE world class. And their music is compelling, enriching, horizons-expanding and rollicking fun! Especially for a lover and player of the guitar. I return to these pieces again and again, never settling on a favorite and hoping that this volley of Guitarfire will be the first of many!” -Alan Miner-

"I'm nibbling on the samples of each track that Amazon has offered and after hearing the third track, I'm afraid I can't listen to any more... SAMPLES! I'm sold... This CD is a serious showcase of what is possible with a beautiful, but beefy, sounding acoustic guitar. I'm a metal head from way back, so I enjoy me some head-banging, but there's nothing like hearing things stripped down of all it's distortion and fuzz and hearing an acoustic lead run that to me, is WAY better than some metal scale trilling at 250BPM." -John Dougherty-

One Response to Welcome to GuitarFire

  1. From Alan Miner: “”I just got a copy of the CD and it’s even better than I had anticipated! HUGE congratulations on a genuine tour de force!

    I don’t have a stereo system capable of doing justice to Goodman, Dobrov and Burns, so I brought it to the house of a friend. He has a “music room,” into which he’s placed top-notch speakers and 300 watts worth of wall-shaking power. He turned it up loud. Not too loud — it’s acoustic music, after all — and everything came through REALLY well. And WOW!

    I’ve said it many times: these guys are world-class talents.

    The production values on this CD are excellent. I absolutely love it when you can hear some of the movement of fingers and the occasional squeak, creak, tap, shuffle or intake of breath, that lets you understand that you’re hearing everything.

    Dobrov, Burns and Goodman are so good, and their playing is so clean, that the extraneous sounds are minimal, but present, giving that authentic, right there feel.

    The musicianship on this CD is just phenomenal. These guys have loads of technique as well as a superb feel for the notes. The songs cover such a range of emotion… from languid to frantic to contemplative to fiery to ethereal and more. The players shift from mood to mood with an effortlessness that is sheer, laugh out loud delight.

    Dobrov and Burns are exquisite guitar players, while Jerry Goodman’s legendary reputation, dating all the way back to his days with John McLaughlin and Mahavishnu, is well-deserved.

    Dobrov’s Adamas and Burns’ Elite are simply gorgeous sounding instruments. Gigantic kudos to the folks at Muffin Records who did such a great job of putting the listener right in the room where these three great musicians are playing!

    One thing I love about the tracks on this CD: they didn’t scrimp. Most are five minutes or more. Lots of guitar and violin playing to love on this disc!

    I bought three CD’s, with two being advance Christmas gifts. I know the recipients are going to be as thrilled with them as I am.

    I think I might have settled on a favorite track — at least for now. I’m going with “Outer Sunset,” though “Tamboura” is giving it a run for its money! “Outer Sunset” is mystery and tension, with streaks of fire and mesmerizing pizzicato violin in the background, as well as lots more Goodman, both understated and in your face. Great song! That’ll be the favorite — for this week.

    I’ll be listening to this one a lot!
