Johnson, Marc - Bass Desires
Really great, guitar oriented modern jazz/electric jazz. Frisell and Scofield are both pretty great on this.
"Bass Desires was a rather unusual group, for despite their title and the fact that leader Marc Johnson was a bassist (formerly with the Bill Evans Trio), the main voices were the contrasting guitars of Bill Frisell (who doubled on guitar synthesizer) and John Scofield; drummer Peter Erskine completed the group. This wide-ranging set has four diverse originals, Elmer Bernstein's "A Wishing Doll," a lengthy rendition of John Coltrane's "Resolution," and the folk melody "Black Is the Color of My True Love's Hair." The post-bop music is continually colorful, with Frisell taking honors."-All Music Guide
