.... that breathes more than rocks.
This is a fine sonic outing (reminds me of a day spent in Nature with loved ones, with time for relaxing together and apart, enjoying the day's radiance and calm and passing clouds and the settling of night). It also reminds me alot of Miles Davis' meandering IN A SILENT WAY, but treated a bit like Bill Laswell's mix on PANTHALASSA or outtakes from FINDING FORRESTER's soundtrack. I like it, and did from the first instant, although it's not my favorite Frisell (EAST/WEST is). It is good as background (passive) but also rewarding with more active listening, but not brilliant enough to demand or reward sustained active mode...(for that check out Steve Tibbetts' work). There is alot of variety here ("Frontiers" even sounds Eno-esque in it's ambience), but all of a kind. Overall this is a jazzy, complex, mellow, futuristic and lively ambience. 4 plus; highly recommend.
