CD Review: Former Police Guitarist Andy Summers Take A More Abient Approach On "Triboluminescence"

Andy Summers, former guitarist for The Police, is preparing to release his 14th studio album titled "Triboluminescence" on March 24th. This album will continue in the new direction Summers started in 2015 with his last album "Metal Dog." The album has a much more ambient reflection than his past releases as Summers keeps the music fresh with multi-layered instrumentation and rhythms that provide the perfect backdrop for his guitar work.
The new 9-song release begins with the ambient tones of "If Anything" as Summers' guitar solo highlights the opening track. The music gets much more interesting with the layered sounds of the nearly ten-minute instrumental, "Triboluminescence." He gets the feeling of jazz fusion flowing through "Adinkra" and the worldly tones of "Shadowland," before reaching "Haunted Dolls," which sounds like a long lost outtake from The Police era. The album closes with the funky beats of "Gigantopithecus" as Summers ignites the energy of his solo, then the gentle, psychedelic, backwards guitar of "Garden Of The Sea" finishes your adventure.
