    Frisell and Willner seem to have taken inspiration from the sounds of classic soul music is what really sets this apart from others in the Frisell catalog Not only that but Frisell s delays return in a more prominent role and he offers up some of his fiercest playing in years There are a handful of introspective pieces that feature just the strings and guitar with some slight sonic embellishments from Willner The majority of the tunes however sound something like Bill Frisell scoring the music to Superfly The soul grooves are tough to miss but with this cast of players it comes off like some cinematic offshoot of soul music The grooves are fantastic and Frisell really rises to the occasion bringing back the delays nasty distorted tone and ugly harmonics that have been largely absent from his more recent releases There are still lots of lovely sounds but it s great to hear him stretching out a bit more again Tony Scherr and Kenny Wollesen have not only served as Frisell s rhythm section in the past but they also play together in Sex Mob Sometimes aided by Don Alias they really drive the tunes with the strings
