    Fresh from the success of his fastest-selling release, The Willies, Bill Frisell marks the recording debut of the Intercontinentals, a band he formed in 2001 and which made its debut at Seattle's Earshot Festival. The band blends Frisell's own brand of American twang and his inimitiable improvisational style with Brazilian, Greek, and Malian sounds.

    When does a jazz record stop being a jazz record? When it replaces the ding-ding-de-ding of the trap player's ride cymbal with a calabash and shaker player? When it forgoes a walking bass for a plucking oud? If you answer yes to any of these and still love a jazzman's take on whatever is left over after these adjustments are made, meet THE INTERCONTINENTALS.
    Guitarist Bill Frisell and company, of course, are not all that concerned with labels because if they were, they would have made a recording with far fewer influences. Think of this as a world-music album with a strong blues inflection and an ensemble led by one of jazz's most accomplished 21st-century individualists. Though the group sound does not have the peaks and valleys that a more conventional jazz album features (no hot solos or hushed ballads), we are treated to some deeply hypnotic grooves, many of which contain haunting, simple melodies that sound as old as the hills. Music fans of many stripes can be thankful for Frisell's fearless and smart eclecticism.
