A Frisell Masterpiece
on November 30, 2001
This outing is on the outer fringes of eclecticism even by Bill's standard with this wild ensemble. The odd instrumentation succeeds in making extremely modern music that swings (without a drummer!), is humorous, tranquil, totally Bill. This date is still a fresh sound five years later into Bill's explorations of old-timey meets whatever. Even after Bill's more recent projects, if this album were coming out now, for the first time, it would sound like a wild new direction/addition to what he's been up to. A continually enjoyable listen.
