Eugene Chadbourne: Guitar, Banjo, Dobro, Voice

"For me playing solo is the purest form of expression. The two solo CDs Strings and Songs give a representativ cross section of my work. In a way they go to the heart of my music."- Eugene Chadbourne

"«Free improvised country & western bebop». Folk and traditional songs by Tim Buckley, Phil Ochs, Wilie Nelson, Nick Drake … which will not escape unscathed if the cover versions are compared with the originals. The guitarist, banjo player and singer Eugene Chadbourne says of his own music: «Imagine a world where Johnny Cash and Phil Ochs meet head on with Derek Bailey and you are getting close.»

Strings is a plurely instrumental production. Eight titles are Chadbourne’s improvisations among compositions by Sonny Rolling, Billy Strayhorn and Duke Ellington. Eugene Chadbourne about Songs: «I like the songs, they are very honest, very emotional.»"
