"Burning Gums is Jazz that Burns and Spreads"
"it's clear that there isn't much these three can't do. This self-titled
release could have been twice as long, and never gotten old.

Representing three continents, Burning Gums is a fresh new color on the
seemingly endless palette of jazz guitar bands. The trio's debut album contains
nine exciting tracks showcasing high caliber musicianship expertly navigating
between the many styles of music from samba to swing. Interesting compositions
and unusual arrangements of classics like So What and Killer Joe will keep
listeners pleasantly alert. Norbert Marius' smooth bass grooves provide
solid foundation for guitarist Ron Jackson's sophisticated improvisations,
which are expertly matched by Matsu Hiroyuki's energetic drumming, all creating
the very special sound of Burning Gums. A sound that will make its mark!
A true jam.
