Fred Frith Trio
Frith's latest venture marries the extreme poly-rhythmic tendencies of the ever good-humored Jordan Glenn with Jason Hoopes' unique blend of down-the-middle groove and on-the-edge abandon—an unstoppable river of subtle energy and deep passion. As Glen Kenny put it in a review of their recent concerts at The Stone in New York: "Glenn's style split the difference between Tony Oxley's math and Paul Motian's ethereal swing, while Hoopes juggled time in the tradition of Scott La Faro. Which allowed Frith to move forward with a relaxed, confident demonstration of how physical and rhythmic a guitarist he really is at heart...With Hoopes and Glenn, Frith's encyclopedic musicality found a sinuous rhythmic platform…over, under, sideways, and down..."
