Vic Juris – Omega Is The Alpha (SCCD 31696)

After 5 years’ absence since his 2004 output While My Guitar Gently Weeps (SCCD 31553) guitarist Vic Juris comes back here with a strong trio album, his trademark unpredictability intact to surprise us again.

His earlier release Remembering Eric Dolphy (SCCD 31453) prompted JazzTimes’ Duck Baker to write, “ Vic Juris is a versatile and impressively accomplished guitarist. His playing exudes warmth, intelligence and respect for the tradition.

AAJ-NY’s Andrew Hoven also commented, “ As a significant statement of its own by guitarist Vic Juris and his sympathetic ensemble, Remembering Eric Dolphy is an undeniable success. As the tribute affair its title suggests it proves to be far more illusive….. Juris’ writing is exceptionally strong throughout, touching on many moods.
