"Agent 22" CD - Tom Griesgraber
Agent 22 mixes the talents of Stick player Tom Griesgraber with dual guitarist Jimmy Patton and drummer/percussionist Ryan Moran. The combination of Stick with tapped guitars can at times sound like one gigantic tapping instrument, and at other times like a small orchestra of different musicians. The Stick functions in both a "bass" and "guitar" role using sounds that range from the clean unaffected tone to distortion with some MIDI and VG-8 sounds thrown in as well. Drums, congas, tablas and a variety of other percussion sounds round out the trio. Eleven original instrumental tracks mix rock, jazz and funk.
