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 through 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.
