The trio of Fred Frith, John Oswald and Anne Bourne recorded live at the Rivoli in Toronto in 1998, subtle to cantankerous improvisation of the highest caliber.
Frith / Bourne / Oswald
Released in: Canada
"This 1998 live recording is a successful combination of artists: guitarist Fred Frith with cellist Anne Bourne and sax squawker John Oswald. The main set is about 40 minutes long and impresses throughout. Frith's emphasis on vibrato and delay seems to dictate the kinds of ideas the three of them come up with, and all three are in great form, able to invent shifting rhythmic ideas and melodic statements to match the implied rhythms of the effects. Oswald shows nice range in his sax playing, sounding plaintive, dirty and angry. Bourne's cello playing is equal parts full-bore sawing and more delicate passages, where she and Frith duet with Oswald's punctuations. All three mimic each other's ideas with wordless vocalising, and they each display strong improvising skills. This concert would have been a great show, and this recording has miles of headroom."-David Dacks, Exclaim
