To Sail, To Sail

Fred Frith's solo acoustic guitar record "To Sail, To Sail" (Tzadik 2008) is fascinating stuff. The tracks are dedicated to his "teachers", like Champion Jack Dupree, Barre Phillips, Davy Graham, John Cage and Terry Riley (and several more).
We get some blues, folk and all kinds of styles performed on a Taylor 810 Model Steel-string Acoustic Guitar, with the help of some sticks and bows I guess. What you can do with a guitar!
