    Featuring the irrepressible Bill Frisell on multiple guitars, this remix of the title piece from Michael Gordon’s riveting collaboration with Kronos Quartet transports the music into jazz-inflected sonic dimensions with a distinctly ambient twist.

Cantaloupe Music has made a massive impact in the new music community, and has been recognized by critics and fans worldwide for its edgy and adventurous sounds.

    Our goal is to provide a home for contemporary classical and post-classical music that is, in the words of Michael Gordon, “too funky for the academy.” Throughout its nearly 15-year history, Cantaloupe has repeatedly received Top Ten of the Year accolades from such publications as the New York Times, the New Yorker, the Washington Post, the Boston Globe, The Guardian (UK), The Wire (UK), Newsday, Mojo magazine, Gramophone, Billboard, Stereophile and Time Out New York.

    Tags: "Nashville" releases on vinyl Nov 9 2018, Bill Frisell,   

    From Nonesuch Records: “Bill Frisell’s “Nashville” to Be Released on Vinyl on November 9, 2018″ 

    From Nonesuch Records

    Bill Frisell’s “Nashville” to Be Released on Vinyl on November 9, 2018.

    Guitarist Bill Frisell’s classic album Nashville, first released on Nonesuch Records in 1997, will receive its first worldwide vinyl release on November 9, 2018. The vinyl edition, made in partnership with Run Out Groove as its second Cornerstones title (“records that we believe should be a foundational part of everyone’s music collection”), was mastered for vinyl by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound in a two-LP set pressed on 180g vinyl at Record Industry in the Netherlands. The set comes in a gatefold tip-on jacket made at Stoughton Printing with outtake photos from the sessions. Limited to 3,000 copies worldwide, the Nashville vinyl edition is available to pre-order now in the Run Out Groove Shop and in the Nonesuch Store.

    Bill Frisell’s Nashville evokes a distinct American regional flavor and marks an entirely new chapter in his career. In natural succession to recordings like This Land and Have a Little Faith, Nashville provides a deeper look into Bill Frisell’s long-standing fascination with Americana. It is a departure from the traditional jazz quartet, both in its instrumentation and repertoire.

    Recorded in the country-music capital of the world with some of this country’s finest musicians, Nashville features Adam Steffey (mandolin) and Ron Block (banjo), of Alison Krauss’s band Union Station; Jerry Douglas (dobro), widely known for his work with artists ranging from Jerry Garcia to Hank Williams, Jr.; and Viktor Krauss (bass), a veteran of Lyle Lovett’s band who later released his own Nonesuch album, Far from Enough. Frisell originals and a few covers make up this record, including Neil Young’s “One of These Days” and Skeeter Davis’s 1963 hit “The End of the World,” both sung by Robin Holcomb.

    When asked about creating Nashville, Frisell said: “One day Bob Hurwitz at Nonesuch asked me, ‘How would you like to go to Nashville and make an album?’ Who, me? This had been done before. I’m thinking of a couple of my all-time favorite albums. Bob Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde and Gary Burton’s Tennessee Firebird. But, wow. Me? The dictionary defines avant garde as ‘new and unusual or experimental ideas.’ I know some folks didn’t quite see it that way, but for me, this was the most avant garde thing I’d ever done. It was a big step into the unknown. I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. I was scared, but as soon as I got there I was welcomed with open arms. All kinds of doors were opened. Everyone wanted to play. The music took over. I learned many new things. I made many new friends. My mind was blown. I’ll be forever grateful to Bob Hurwitz and Nonesuch for giving me this extraordinary opportunity.”
