180g Vinyl Double LP!
Recorded Live At The Village Vanguard!

Small Town presents guitarist Bill Frisell and bassist Thomas Morgan in a program of duets, the poetic chemistry and stripped-down intensity of their playing captured live at New York’s hallowed Village Vanguard. The album includes a tribute to Paul Motian in the form of a searching interpretation of one of the late drummer’s pieces, an homage to jazz elder Lee Konitz, several country/blues-accented Frisell originals, and an inimitable treatment of the famous James Bond theme "Goldfinger."

"Frisell is a guitarist whose minimalist aesthetic colors each carefully chosen note he plays, and he can coat a room in mysterious yet strangely warming tones..." - The New Yorker, March 2017

"With Small Town, Frisell has clearly found another ideal musical foil to add to his growing cadre of musicians with whom he collaborates on a regular basis. Intimate, beautiful and deep, while at the same time knotty, witty and curiously skewed, Small Town delivers, in many ways, on the promise of In Line's five duo tracks 35 years on, with a live set that proves great music isn't just where you find it; it's everywhere." - John Kelman, All About Jazz

"Morgan's quick anticipations of Frisell's moves give their conversations a startling buoyancy; the weave of bell-like harmonics, quiet electronics and folk-blues figures is mesmerising on the Paul Motian tribute It Should Have Happened a Long Time Ago; Frisell's Song for Andrew is like a Nina Rota movie theme; and the title track is wistful country-rock that drifts into haunting, ever-mobile dissonances. It all sounds as natural as talking or singing." - John Fordham, The Guardian
