Next recording is in the can!

We recorded our next album in July, 2019. We’re excited about the repertoire: pieces by Phillip Houghton, Robert Beaser, Michael Hedges, Allan Wilcocks (Tilman Hoppstock), Frederick Hand, and Kevin Callahan. Thanks to our fantastic production team: producer, Steve Rodby and audio engineer, Rich Breen. There were seriously good vibes in the studio. We're looking forward to release in a few months. Stay tuned!

With Pat Metheny after the New York premiere.

With Pat Metheny in attendance, LAGQ played the world premiere of  “Road to the Sun” on October 20, 2016 at the Newman Center in Denver. The piece is a major work - six movements in 25 minutes - and runs the expressive gamut. Metheny is one of the world’s most celebrated compositional voices and this piece is a thrilling sampling of his wide-range expression.
