Bill Frisell | Thomas Morgan make August '5 best Paste studio sessions'

Bookmark and Share

Canonic artists really stole the show in the Paste Studio last month. We were lucky enough to welcome some of the most influential musicians in the history of jazz, blues, prog rock and more into our Manhattan studio this past Aug., and those sessions ended up among our collective favorites. Among them was Bill Frisell & Thomas Morgan. 

Guitarist-composer and sonic innovator Bill Frisell paid a nearly 45-minute-long visit to Paste Studios last month with his bass-playing partner, Thomas Morgan. Together the two brilliant instrumentalists performed tunes from their new ECM recording, Small Town, showing an uncommon empathy and a conversational chemistry on the title track, as well as Morgan's beautiful "Pearl," an intimate reading of John Barry's James Bond theme "Goldfinger," and a highly interactive rendition of Thelonious Monk's "Epistrophy."  -Bill Milkowski
