Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Bill Frisell always had his own place on the map of guitar-led jazz (and fusion). This his album with two jazz scene veterans drummer Paul Motian and bassist Ron Carter is one more example confirming it.

Classic jazz guitar trio plays all the list of great jazz compositions in their own translation. And first of all it is translation to Frisell's musical language - relaxed guitar jazz with lot of country,blues and Americana influences, supported by great acoustic jazz rhythm section.

Listener will find many of compositions he knows played in unusual manner. Acoustic nostalgic tunes don't sound as fusion or post bop you expect. It's just Frisell world of sounds and atmosphere, and if you like (slightly sentimental) soul of your music more then technical acrobatics, I believe you will like this album as well.
