Product Description:

Personnel: Bill Frisell (vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar); Eyvind Kang (viola); Viktor Krauss (acoustic bass, electric bass).
Recording information: Flora; Studio Litho, Seattle, WA.
Photographer: Michael Wilson .
This collaborative album is a surprise gem. Featuring the shimmering, ethereal guitar of jazz titan Bill Frisell, and the work of several equally superb musicians, Floratone puts traditional musical chops on equal footing with high-concept sound painting. Loops loom large in the landscape, and while there are discernable melodies and well-crafted compositions, the album comes across more as a floating dream with its circulatory system of delays, reverb, and studio treatments. There is some evidence of the roots music Frisell has flirted with throughout his career, yet these styles are a backdrop to the heady, layered quality of the sonic construction. Audiophiles will have much fun with this disc, as will anyone who appreciates sophisticated, creative, contemporary music.
