'The Willies'

Guitarist Bill Frisell tells the story of how his latest CD came to be. The album is called The Willies. It's a departure for Frisell, mostly filled with old-timey American music. In this musical essay Frisell tells us how he met Danny Barnes, a native of Texas and someone that grew up hearing and learning music in the oral tradition and how that brought the album about. (4:00) The disc is The Willies, by Bill Frisell. It's on Nonesuch records.
