This week's Sunday Music Muse Day selections finds me enjoying some well known favorite musicians, and a legend who I didn't have a record or CD by. First up is the eclectic guitarist Bill Frisell Ghost Town CD. A review on All Music website says "While Bill Frisell has released plenty of albums under his own name, this is his first true solo album -- the first on which he plays all of the instruments himself. These include electric and acoustic guitar, six-string banjo, and bass, as well as the occasional looped sample." I didn't notice this until I was listening to it. Bill's range of musical ideas are always amazing, it hard to label him, so I don't try and just enjoy his work. His blend of jazz, country, and blue grass, and folk, always make me think of the composer Aaron Copland, who was Instrumental in forging a distinctly American style of composition.
My second selection is Chick Corea Origin- Live at the Blue Note. This is premiere of a new group Corea put together with a talented batch of young players.
