Frith, Fred - Step Across The Border

This is the soundtrack to the film which followed Fred touring & playing in the late 80's, when he was actively on the road all the time. This functions as a sort of a 'best of' sampler, featuring many aspects of his work, some of which can be found on other albums, but most of which is only available here.
This includes many great players: Tom Cora, Haco, Zeena Parkins, John Zorn, Rene Lussier, Bob Ostertag, Lars Hollmer, Eino Haapala, Iva Bittova, Hans Bruniusson, Joey Barron, and many many others.
One of his great ones!

“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.”-Chris Cutler
