Monday Excursions - 13 April 2009

Banjo night!

Boulder Acoustic Society's 'Now', Bela Fleck & The Flecktones' 'Flight Of The Cosmic Hippo,' and Bill Frisell's 'Ghost Town'.

10 - 10:25

Boulder Acoustic Society, 'Now' - 2007 Boulder Acoustic Society.

We heard all 25 minutes of this 8 track album. Listen for Kailin Yong on the fiddle!

10:25 - 11:10

Bela Fleck & The Flecktones, 'Flight of the Cosmic Hippo' - 1991 Warner Bros.

We heard all of this album. This was made back in 91 so there's a bit of that synthy sound in some places (you know, that same synth sound heard everywhere within 4 years either way of 1990)... Pairs nicely with the banjo...

11:10 - midnight

Bill Frisell, 'Ghost Town' - 2000 Nonesuch

A solo album, Frisell manages to flesh out the tracks by laying on multiple instruments (among them: electric and acoustic guitars, 6-string banjo, effects loops, and bass). I think we made it through track 12 on this one.
