Editorial Reviews

Product Description


These recordings from 1990-91 add cellist Hank Roberts to Bill Frisell's then-usual trio with bassist Kermit Driscoll and drummer Joey Baron, and there's a remarkable affinity between Roberts and Frisell's instrumental approaches. So much of Frisell's distinctive guitar style has come from his attention to sustain and pitch bending, qualities immediately available in Roberts's cello. Several of the guitarist's compositions here are concentrated on that relationship and on the spatial distinction that exists between those effects when they're accomplished by acoustic or electronic means. It's one of the things separating Frisell from the more commonplace forms of jazz fusion. He actually explores the differences and crossovers between acoustic and electronic space to create a musical analogue for the ways we experience technology. That's also evident in his contrasting uses of acoustic and electric guitars on individual tracks. There are tracks here, like "Rob Roy" and "Smilin' Jones," when Frisell's music suggests a parallel evolution of American music, as if country & western and not jazz had become its "art" music. With its rhythmic and tonal conflicts and odd, oscillating blendings of acoustic guitar harmonics, bowed cello, and Roberts's electronic "jazz-a-phone fiddle," the title track seems to pose "Where in the World?" as a utopian question. --Stuart Broomer

5.0 out of 5 stars The best. April 2, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the best Frisell CD there is, and that's saying a lot. Awesome. A must-have. Hypnotic, haunting, and mind-bending.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unsung beauty... August 6, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This album is one of Bill Frisell's diamonds in the rough! This album features a quartet setting adding a cello to frisell's usual trio (baron, driscoll). The results are haunting and amazing. The beauty of the songs are what stike me the most. His songwriting abilities are really on display here. Although, Frisell does get naughty a few times with some excellent solos. The album has a masked tenderness with dark overtones, the feel the album creates is the crowning aspect of the album. Just try out "Rob Roy," "Child at Heart," and "where in the World?" to really get a taste of this hauntingly beautiful album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who is this guy ??!! September 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD
New to the jazz scene and still undecided on which genre suits me best. I've explored Mingus to Uri Caine, Coltrane to John Zorn. But I must say this album, on first listen, blew me away. Haunting and intense. Something that stirs the heart and soul from within. It takes you to far away places never wanting to return. Melodic and beautiful. Just a touch of avant garde. Enough to satisfy the craving. This is my first Bill Frisell album and only discovered him from reading reviews and listening to sound bytes on Amazon. Someone make a recommendation for my next. Please !! Hurry !!
