Music

NEW

Bill Frisell, BEAUTIFUL DREAMERS (Savoy, $15.98) – Guitarist Bill Frisell has had a wonderful interplay with other string players during his career, whether violin, steel guitar, or cello. His new trio with long-time cohorts Eyvind Kang on viola and Rudy Royston on drums continues this winning streak. Melodically thrilling originals are interspersed with standards old and new: "Tea for Two" by Vincent Youmans; "Benny's Bugle" by Benny Goodman; "Keep on the Sunny Side," by the A.P. Carter; and the title track by Stephen Foster. Another beautiful release by Frisell.
