8:30 * $10 adv/$12 dos

From Barnes’ website, regarding the new release, Dirt on the Angel:

Dirt on the Angel.
At long last. Two years in the making, Dirt on the Angel. The All Music Guide calls this cd “visionary.”

Big new hot steaming batch of original compositions from Barnes, with covers of Beck’s Loser, Stringbean/Uncle Dave Macon’s Keep My Skillet Good and Greasy, and Ronnie Lane/Ronnie Wood’s Ooh La La.

Performers include Rolling Stones keyboardist Chuck Leavell, American composer and jazz guitar legend Bill Frisell, bluegrass/jazz/classical violinist Darol Anger, and Master of American music Dirk Powell.

Produced by Barnes. Recorded in Seattle WA and Macon GA.

A compendium of American forms, taking poetic inspiration from the writings of Nathaniel Hawthorne, harmonies and rhythms from prerecorded American music, up to and including modern cut and paste techniques. A knowledgeable music fan’s delight. Hear Dirt on the Angel on quality radio stations, and read about it in magazines that have an interest in music.

Barnes + Frisell under Barnes’ direction = happy, happy me, as the equation running the other direction is also highly rewarding.
