Frith, Fred/Ensemble Modern - Traffic Continues
Frith Frith (guitar, musical director), Franck Ollu (conductor), Ikue Mori (drum machines), Zeena Parkins (harp, electric harp).
"On a recording that will appeal to both Jazz and Classical audiences, Fred Frith operates somewhere near the center of the gray area where Rock and New Music meet. Frith has recorded with musicians as diverse as John Zorn's Naked City and The Residents. The Ensemble Modern was founded twenty years ago and for a long time was the only German ensemble dedicated to New Music. They have collaborated with such artists as Karlheinz Stockhausen, Steve Reich and John Adams."
