This review is from: Petra Haden And Bill Frisell (Audio CD)
This is a sweet record, nothing ground breaking, just quite lovely. It's a shame Petra didn't act as a bit more of a restraining editing force on Bill Frisell. Her old band That Dog at their best were always more about being concise and focused. That can work in jazz too but it's plainly not Bill Frisell's thing. His playing is nice enough but not overflowing with character. It could have done with more of Petra's violin to spark more life into him. Her singing is as lovely as ever.
One star off for him not putting as much into this as he might. The other one off for the Cold Play cover. Neither of them have ever produced anything so empty and souless that i've heard. What was the point? A joke? But they both seem to take it so seriously.
