3 stars Bill Frisell's debut on Savoy Jazz label. He plays with semi acoustic there, and you will hardly be surprised with music you will hear.

Beside of few excurses to some hardcore areas (as with Zorn's Naked City), Frisell's lands are quite comfortable Americana-based down tempo aerial fusion. I really like many of his albums, and this new one is similar to them. But there are both pros and cons.

For fans of Bill's music there are no surprises, and they will find expected doze of his usual melancholic melodic very acoustic down tempo country/bluegrass influenced jazzy sound. But even being of his music's fan, I would like to hear something new, some new ingredients, new accents, possibly even some experimentation. Unhappily, not on this album.

Sound is safe and pleasant. Excellent easy accessible listening for long autumn evening, reading book near fireplace. As well, as almost any other his album. Nice music, you just need to ask yourself, if you're interested in one more " classic" Frisell album.
