Alternative Download for this album WITH graphics

Directly through billfrisell(dot)com. Same price, plus there is FLAC option available. Shame on Itunes for not including the graphics. 4 stars for the music, as you can tell from the previews.

I second that motion re: illustrative material

The recording is spectacular. Bill Frisell is a never ending boatload of surprises. Hats right the hell off: again! I just tried to purchase the cd on Frisell's site and their credit card stuff is screwed up, so I returned to iTunes. And, as always, no visual material from the cd I purchased. Why Apple doesn't offer this as an option is beyond me, considering how well they're doing at everything else. Please Apple: if we pay legit for a cd there is no reason not to include the visuals.

It is better than I could have hoped. My favorite is "Egg Radio," but all songs are trypical Frisell enchantment. My only problem with this album is that it includes 2 songs already included in the original iTunes East/West album ("Big Shoe" and "What the World Needs Now"). But you must buy the album to get the the best of it, since 2 very long and magical great tunes (including a Frisell original) are "album only."

The more control a player has over the nature of that sound, the more likely he is to project a distinctive musical personality. For example, a saxophonist has virtually unlimited physical control of the sound that comes through his horn, and therefore a wide range of tonal expression at his command, which partially explains the disproportionate number of saxophonists in the pantheon of great jazz musicians.
