Alternative Press (7/00, p.94) - 3 out of 5 - "...Bizarre....gradually emerging as an almost airtight, emotionally barricaded sonic universe....This is not hillbilly music; rather, it is music intended to evoke 'hillbilly culture' to those who have never left a major city..."The Wire (5/00, p.69) - "...His first solo guitar album....Frisell tinkers with [Hank] William's 'I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry' and the Gershwin's 'My Man's Gone Now' from PORGY AND BESS, 2 eternal songs which he expertly picks away at like a hungry buzzard until only the bare bones remain."CMJ (3/27/00, p.23) - "...A milestone in the career of a true innovator - enchanting as anything he has done and a clear window into his muse."Down Beat (8/00, p.27) - Ranked #3 Jazz Album in Downbeat "Critics Poll 2000".Down Beat (6/00, pp.69-70) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...So immaculately layered and natural sounding that you can't imagine any other guitarist duplicating it....painting Frisell as the contented, beauty-worshipping man he is."JazzTimes (8/00, pp.91-2) - "...[He] is like a painter dealing with guitaristic layers....Spare as the setting is, [he] invests a lively world feeling behind economic material....[It] is the polar opposite of background music....he's the friendly guitar anti-hero of our time."No Depression (3-4/00, p.113) - "...a lyrical Utopia where the one-of-a-kind guitarist can indulge his love of glowing heartland melodies in splendid isolation....The bright, vibrant sound...from his layered picking and strumming lights up the room..."129.3226

Down Beat (p.80) - "The setting is perfect for Frisell's relaxed, lyric style, whether investigating the harmonic and rhythmic nooks and crannies of Thelonious Monk tunes or bringing a David Lynch-style noir to the bluegrass murder ballad 'Pretty Polly'."JazzTimes (p.89) - "[Motian] adopts a fluid role in which he easily, organically morphs from pianistic comping to playing contrapuntal lines with Lovano to occasionally filling in bass lines..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.102) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "As delicate as fine-spun gossamer, Frisell's spidery, discursive melodies are underpinned throughout by Carter's elastic figures and the deceptively easy gait of Motian's nuanced drumming."103.4581

Uncut (6/03, p.91) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...His lap-guitar style is exemplary, his voice has a heartfelt, rich patina and the backing musicians, including Bill Frisell on electric guitar, create a folk-jazz accompaniment of almost spiritual empathy..."Living Blues (6/03, p.88) - "...A timeless collection of low-key acoustic abstractions....Electric guitar genius Bill Frisell contributes gentle riffs to the album, while drummer Scott Amendola adds thoughtful percussive elements..."0.7191947

Down Beat (4/97, p.58) - 3.5 Stars (out of 5) - "...pushes jazz to the fringe....turbulent free-blowing, whimsical tempo-shiftings and riveting fractured melodies....most tracks feature fast, furious and imaginative improvisational interplay..."Option (5-6/97, p.93) - "...Babkas at first sounds like a clone of the Joe Lovano/Bill Frisell/Paul Motian trio...They get a lot more interesting when they break from that mold on extended pieces....fresh, exhilarating noise."0.5085475

The Wire (p.58) - "The multi-level activity of '858-7' eye, like the sun shining around the edges of a vast sky full of storm clouds....By the end of record, Frisell has created musical images beyond these particular paintings."Down Beat (p.62) - "Guitarist Bill Frisell's noisy evil twin is back, and in the company of three string players who like to manipulate sound as much as he does."0.5085475

The Wire (4/00, p.69) - "...Horvitz and Lowe unplugged, while the distinctive Zony Mash sound centers on his Hammond B-3 and other eclectic instruments. On piano, Horvitz is economical yet lyrical...constantly working small surprises..."CMJ (3/13/00, p.31) - "...offers some of the most intriguing and unique music that you'll ever hear all year.

Rolling Stone (9/30/99, p.87) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...[revives] the master's dynamic orchestrations and elegant drifts and still [moves] forward. Eclectic guitarist Bill Frisell offers a debonair solution on this set of arrangements..."Entertainment Weekly (10/15/99, p.83) - "...Frisell turns an intriguing concept into a lovely and mostly instrumental project....[His] attitude toward idiom is slippery and generous." - Rating: B+CMJ (11/1/99, p.30) - "...Bill Frisell set out to record a full band interpretation of [Burt Bacharach and Elvis Costello's] PAINTED FROM MEMORY using a cast of stars....Frisell's distinctly different versions bear the leader's stamp both as a player and as an arranger."JazzTimes (12/99, pp.147-8) - "...Frisell works up soulful, horn chart-laced readings of the songs, with such comrades as drummer Brian Blades, Don Byron, Ron Miles, and Curtis Fowlkes....This is brainy music...with beauty in mind, which makes the like-minded closet romantic Frisell a perfect match."0.4315168

Down Beat (p.85) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "Frisell's melodies and moods have an easy appeal, from the Gypsy lull of 'Probability Cloud' to the Copland-esque moments of 'Boo And Scout.'"JazzTimes (p.101) - "Bill Frisell's spare, mysterioso chordal voicings are as evocative and haunting as the intriguing black-and-white Farm Security Administration photos from the '40s that grace the front and back covers of HISTORY, MYSTERY."0.406838

"An art piece, a sociopolitical document and a musical meditation, Bill Morrison's latest found-footage documentary should strike chords with niche audiences."Variety "A pure pairing of silent historical films and Frisell's music...it offers a unique way of communing with the past that will be appreciated by many who see it."Hollywood Reporter "[I]t's a unique, highly immersing audio-visual experience that would be as at home in a museum as it is in a movie theater -- and that's a first-order compliment."Los Angeles Times "[A] beautiful exploration of the Mississippi River flood of 1927....Its soundtrack is an artwork in its own right..."New York Times0.3878385

For others, it will be the sensuous ear candy of George Van Eps..."0.1163515
