  • About This Album

    Frisell works in quartet setting, including cellist / ”jazz-a-phone” fiddler Hank Roberts. The Philadelphia Inquirer declared, “Frisell is not only a master of an unusual guitar-based sonic tapestry, he's one of the few composers capable of writing for an interactive ensemble.”
