I think they sound like they're having fun, and the listening is very enjoyable. Good stuff.
Overall, the music on The Willies seems a bit restrained, but never dull. This is music that grows on you more the more you listen to it. Nothing flashy, just quality music-making that makes its points without pretense. If you have enjoyed Frisell's previous "Americana" albums, you will enjoy this one; if you have not yet auditioned Frisell's work in this genre, I would recommend Nashville and Good Dog, Happy Man, both of which are outstanding, as the best places to start. If you enjoy those recordings, this new one will be a welcome addition to your collection.
If you don't like the banjo - open your ears... the guy can play!

I bought several of the tracks individually. They were so good that I bought the entire album. Turns out that those tracks were the only good stuff on the album. Read morePublished on May 16, 2008 by Jim F

When the guitar is in the spotlight, as in "John Hardy was a Desperate Little Man," I'm right there. When the banjo starts taking the lead I want outta there, fast. Read morePublished on September 26, 2002
