Fred Frith – “Clearing” – [Tzadik]

Avant-Garde Solo Guitarist. With over 70 albums bearing his name somewhere in the credits, Fred Frith has shown his guitar work respected all over the world. Recording his own works since 1974 when he set people’s ears on fire with ‘Guitar Solos? he has worked with musicians from Brian Eno to Henry Kaiser. This release is from 2001 on John Zorn‘s Tzadik label as part of the Key Series which focuses on avant-garde musicians all over the globe. His passion can hardly be doubted, listening closely reveals the hard work he is putting into this album through his breathing. Most of his credits are as a colaborator, and this album is one of the few that highlights his solo abilities. Presently Fred Frith is a visiting professor at Terry Riley‘s old stomping grounds, Mills College.
