Ribot, Marc - Silent Movies
"A visionary guitarist, Ribot is a fount of pithy commentary."-New York Times
"Almost a polar opposite of his last release, Party Intellectuals, Silent Movies is mostly filled with gorgeously contemplative compositions performed solo, with minimal overdubs. The album reflects Ribot's fascination with movies and contains pieces intended to function as music for films: some adaptations of music he has written for film, some for movies that he scored that were never released, some for classic silent films that he scored for his own amusement, and some for films of his own imagination."
