some basic info on the album

Over the years, Riley's creative output has slowed somewhat. But after master classical guitarist David Tanenbaum had asked him several times for a guitar piece, Riley responded, inspired no doubt by his teenage son, who had begun studying classical guitar himself. The result is The Book of Abbeyozzud (a made-up word), a planned, not-yet-finished series of twenty-eight works for the guitar -- sometimes solo, sometimes with another guitar, violin, or percussion. This is some of the most melodious stuff the minimalist master has ever composed. The work is powerfully influenced by Spanish folk music, and to a lesser degree by the Indian raga Riley has studied so extensively throughout his career. Tannenbaum plays most of the guitar parts here. Riley's son Gyan plays the others while Tracy Silverman plays violin, and William Winant plays percussion. The composer, Riley, also helped produce the record (from epitonic.com)
