Ophiucus

Getting to play with two of my heroes and one great new friend. I first met Fred Frith when he produced the Dr. Nerve record by Nick Didkovsky around 1986. He’s always been of my favorite guitar colorists. I was so grateful to have him on Metamorphosis. Ditto Oliver Lake, who I met somewhat later and have had a few chances to share music with. I so enjoyed conversing with him on this track, which describes the constellation Ophiucus, the serpent bearer, which is also sometimes counted as the thirteenth sign of the Zodiac. Kris Davis is a new colleague for me, and she shines so strongly on this track. A deep listener and another great colorist, she brought so much to this session. There’s a pensive quality to this piece that sets in soon after it comes crashing out of the gate. I cherish each interaction with these three great improvisers.
