Fred Frith - Step Across The Border (CD)
Release Date: 12/03/13
Frith was a key component of the 80's New York scene, playing with John Zorn's Naked City, & Massacre (w/ Bill Laswell).
This is Fred's soundtrack to the 1990 independent movie of the same name, by Nicolas Humbert and Werner Penzel, voted one of the 100 best films ever by the critics of Cahiers du Cinema. It is one of Fred's most vibrant releases, as the music rushes between styles as far apart as East European folk, Japanese Pop, African drumming and everything you can improvise in between. Fred's guitar and violin are to the fore, with great performances from an all star cast; Iva Bittova, Joey Baron, Tom Cora, John Zorn, Bob Ostertag, Haco, Zeena Parkins and others.
