Frith, Fred: To Sail, To Sail (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"One of the most profound solo statements to date from a musical master who has been crossing musical borders for over three decades! Concentrating exclusively on the acoustic guitar, Fred Frith stretches himself and the instrument like never before, performing with the eloquence and grace of a master in peak form. With a prodigious technique and elegant sense of maturity he draws upon a lifetime of study and experience to bring together influences as diverse as classical, blues, folk, gypsy and free improvisation, creating a fascinating new world of sound and feeling. Beautiful and absolutely essential."-Tzadik
