FRITH, FRED: Step across the Border
Another classic. Along with the Film for which it was a soundtrack this CD follows Fred's work through improvising, group exposition and directed composition (so there is a soundtrack in the film and a soundtrack to the film - both intermingled). This is as broad in musical scope as it is excellently realised and neatly assembled, adding up to a sketch of Fred's many musical identities. Also appearing: Iva Bittova, Tom Cora, Joey Barron, John Zorn, Haco, Ciro Battista and the legendary 'Keep the Dog'.
