With his third album, Three Flights from Alto Nido, Greg Laswell continues to refine his acoustic sound, which combines powerful guitar riffs and sweeping piano with rousing vocals. He leaves behind the intimacy of his previous work, instead going for a record that sounds bigger, more haunting, and more epic. In a session with host David Dye, Laswell plays songs from the new album.
