Fred Frith & Evelyn Glennie

After hearing Fred Frith at The Molde International Jazz Festival this summer, I decided I had to start paying more attention to his music. First album out was last autumn's "The sugar factory" (Tzadik 2007). Frith is improvising together with percussion player Evelyn Glennie in a sugar factory. This is an exciting piece of work! Watch the video, where they play the last part of the 15 minutes long work called "Walls are loosening", and the most beautiful part of the record. There is a movie called "Touch the Sound" (and a soundtrack) on the Frith/Glennie cooperation too.
