Bill Frisell's Nashville evokes a distinct American regional flavor and marks an entirely new chapter in his career. In natural succession to recordings like This Land and Have a Little Faith, Nashville provides a deeper look into Bill Frisell's long-standing fascination with Americana. It is a departure from the traditional jazz quartet, both in its instrumentation and repertoire.
Recorded in the country-music capital of the world with some of this country's finest musicians, Nashville features Adam Steffey (mandolin) and Ron Block (banjo), of Alison Krauss's band Union Station; Jerry Douglas (dobro), widely known for his work with artists ranging from Jerry Garcia to Hank Williams, Jr.; and Viktor Krauss (bass), a veteran of Lyle Lovett's band who later released his own Nonesuch album, Far from Enough. Frisell originals and a few covers make up this record, including Neil Young's "One of These Days" and Skeeter Davis's 1963 hit "The End of the World," both sung by Robin Holcomb.
