"Alex Sill is one of those rare talented individuals that has all the elements in place, and at the age of 22! (?). He’s embraced the Jazz idiom and his fingers dance through it effortlessly while his inspired inner ear guides him through new melodic discoveries. He has a wonderful command of the compositional tools necessary to recognize his inner musical inspirations and make them real in the world in beautiful and generous expressions while still honoring the melody. It’s nice to see a young person have such a passion for this style of music. He is one of the vital players that has the potential to raise the Jazz bar."- Steve Vai

After opening for Robben Ford and Lee Ritenour at the Crown of the Continent Guitar Festival in August 2013, the Trifield Guitar Project sat down for this interview to talk about the festival and their debut album "Montana Suite."

"Alex Sill is one of the new lions emerging into the virtuoso group of young players. He's a guitarist who's destined to be in the front line. His talent on his instrument is phenomenal, and his dedication & hard work to master it began at a young age, and has never faltered. He has absorbed the "cultural" history of the guitar, and will obviously be a cutting edge contributor to the continued evolution of this axe. His solo playing shows his maturity, way beyond his age. And maybe most important, we can hear how much he loves what he's playing. A musical slam dunk." -Dave Grusin (Grammy/Oscar Award Winning Film Composer & Jazz Pianist)

“…really beautiful playing…just amazing.”- Tim Miller (Guitarist/Composer)

“This kid’s a mother****er! I just listened to a few other things, and I think he is right up there with Pat Metheny, in fact I like his ideas a lot more than Pats. Also there is a guy out there by the name of Kurt Rosenwinkel, who is pretty f***ing good, and also modern, but this kid is much more melodic than either Pat Metheny or Kurt Rosenwinkel.” -Tommy Lipuma (Produced 35 albums certified gold or platinum, 33 Grammy nominations, and 3 Grammy wins. He has worked with Barbra Streisand, Miles Davis, George Benson, Al Jarreau, Anita Baker, Natalie Cole, the Yellowjackets, Michael Franks, Diana Krall, Sir Paul McCartney, The Crusaders, Joe Sample, Randy Crawford, Dr. John, to name a few)

"Just heard these young men play and can't say how much I enjoyed it. They opened for me at the Crown of the Continent Guitar Festival-- A hard act to follow!" -Robben Ford (Guitarist for Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, George Harrison and many others)

"Very sweet, sensitive playing!"- Jay Graydon (Grammy award winning guitarist/producer for Ray Charles, Steely Dan, and others)

Amazon reviews for "Montana Suite"

"Every so often an album comes along that 'raises the bar', 'redefines the genre', 'expands the horizon',... While the above are tired & clichéd, this music isn't. Highly recommended to aficionados of great music."

"The compositions are very sophisticated and the musicianship is truly excellent, yet the combination remains accessible and soulful. If you appreciate great players with new music and renditions of other terrific compositions you'll get into Trifield."

"Very refreshing album put together by three extremely virtuosic and musical guitarists, featuring some awesome tunes and a creative approach to sound. I highly recommend this album."

"Don't try to assign a genre, just sit back and enjoy the merging of talent and artistry by these three gifted young guitarists from divergent backgrounds. Jazz, blues/rock, and classical are melded beautifully in this debut release. Do yourself a favor, and scan all the songs one time, because there's something unique and enjoyable on every track. You're almost guaranteed to find something that pleases (or amazes) you."
