Album Notes
Karakoram is led by guitarist Andy Hagiioannu, who is also a composer for TV and other media. If you watch mainstream TV in Europe and the UK you'll most likely have heard his music there.

Some reviews of Andy's work:
'I suspect that I will not hear as satisfying a collection of guitar music this year...' -- C.MICHAEL BAILEY, ALL ABOUT JAZZ, 24/6/07.

'... has a capivating sound [that] builds on tradition but ventures into its own territory. It's a route the listener will appreciate.' -- ERIC ELIAS, JUST JAZZ GUITAR MAGAZINE, August issue, 07

'One of the treats of the album are the half dozen solo cuts: the little winks and whispers that are Hagiioannu’s solo cameos. Tunes [that] bask in the warmth of a lazy afternoon.' -- RANDY WALDEN, MUSIC-REVIEWER.COM, 07/07:

'Hagiioannu is also set apart by finger-picking, which he incorporates into the... trio format, and also on several lyrical unaccompanied pieces...' -- DAVID BERTRAND WILSON, WILSON AND ALROYD RECORD REVIEWS, 26/4/07:

A beautifully written album
When I first listened to this album my ears were instantly attracted to these amazing acoustic and rhythmic sounds.. Karakoram's music is wonderfully written, inviting you to think of Cornwall and all it's beauty. You can tell that this album has had a lot of love and care go into it to produce such lovely music to tempt your ears so much to listen.

Track 1 grabs your attention immediately with its melodies dancing to your ears. Track 7 is a very relaxing piece of music, whilst track 10 has a very warm sound.

I would fully recommed this album, its a pleasure to listen to and I can't wait for the next one.
