(The Return of) Ignatz, by Sam Heldman

Saw Bill Frisell play with his 858 Quartet last night at the Library of Congress -- more challenging than some of his other stuff, and great. And I was thinking all night, who is this incredible cellist, who varies between playing it straight, and banging on it to create a groove? It was Hank Roberts, and the funny thing is it turns out he also plays in a group with my old friend, old-time banjo player Richie Stearns. From avant garde string quartet music, to old-time string band, in one simple step.
