Fred Frith is one of the most important musicians of our time. He was born in Sussex, UK and now lives in California, USA. He first came to attention as one of the founding members of the English avant-rock group Henry Cow. He was and is also a member of groups like Massacre, Art Bears, Skeleton Crew and Cosa Brava. Over the past 40 years Frith has collaborated with outstanding musicians like John Zorn, Tom Cora, Bill Laswell, Carla Kihlstedt, Henry Kaiser, Phil Minton, Brian Eno, The Residents, Marc Ribot, Lol Coxhill, Ikue Mori, Zeena Parkins, Derek Bailey, Anthony Braxton, Evan Parker, John Butcher, Laurie Anderson - the list could go on much longer...
In 1974 Fred Frith released his landmark album Guitar Solos, a glimpse into what he had been doing with his guitar. It was improvised and recorded within four days and presented an experimental and innovative way of playing the instrument. Frith relocated to New York and quickly became part of the downtown avantgarde scene, something he found very liberating as he could be himself instead of living up to what other people were expecting of him. Fred also started composing music for film, dance and theatre.
After a few years in Stuttgart, Germany, Frith went back to the States where he is now professor of composition. Back in 1982 Recommended Records Japan released a live LP of solo guitar improvisations. Now, in 2019 we are proud to present you a new solo guitar album, recorded live in concert in Brussels as part of a European tour. You can hear how Fred's playing has developed in those nearly 40 years, and as usual, this album was engineered by long time collaborator Myles Boisen.
