Bill Frisell Good Dog, Happy Man on 180 Gram 2LP!
After a Hard Day at Work… Relax with this Spectacular Album - Comes with a CD of the Album for Your Car!
Want to experience what it’s like to drive down Highway 61 without having to take the trip? Bill Frisell’s Good Dog, Happy Man will take you there. This 1999 masterpiece splits the difference between country and jazz, and might be the best Americana-flavored jazz ever put to tape. And dig this: Everyone knows that virtuoso guitarist Frisell is a one man wrecking crew. Then toss bassist Viktor Krauss, drummer Jim Keltner, and organist Wayne Horvitz—as ace of a lineup as they come—into the mix. Heaven. Moreover, the sound on this new analog pressing is unreal. The LP immerses you in a world of at-home atmospheres, tones, and textures. Not familiar with this modern classic? You owe it to yourself, and your system, to get a copy today. It’s that great!
Bill Frisell reunites with his much-admired partners from his last outing plus a handful of others for another session of inspired music-making. Joined by renowned drummer Jim Keltner and Lyle Lovett bassist Viktor Krauss, the core band is further expanded to a quintet with the addition of Greg Leisz (Joni Mitchell, k.d. lang) on dobro, mandolin and steel guitars, Wayne Horvitz on organ and Billy Cox on guitar, with a special guest appearance by Ry Cooder.
With the gut-first feeling of rock, the subtleties of jazz, and the earnestness of country, Bill Frisell continues to create a genre unto himself. As with his last two albums, he continues in a musical vein that has brought him a new level of sales success and radio play, all the while maintaining the respect he has commanded as an innovator for nearly 20 years.
“What Frisell has begun to fashion on his latest releases is a sensibility as unmistakably American as that of Charles Ives or Duke Ellington, with the harmonic and tonal complexity of both and a seductive melancholy all his own.” – L.A. Weekly
