Maybe Monday - Unsquare
What a group: Fred Frith (electric guitar), Miya Masaoka (25 string koto), Larry Ochs (saxes) and how about their special guests!
Notes by the label:
“The trio Maybe Monday first unveiled its collaboration in 1997, on-stage at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall. In retrospect, this meeting seems almost inevitable: the three members of the group had been crossing paths for years: Ochs with both Frith and Masaoka through numerous Rova projects, and Frith with Masaoka on a tour of Europe with Tom Cora.
Now for their third album – recorded at the East Side Sound Studio in New York – Maybe Monday have invited four guests: Gerry Hemingway, Carla Kihlstedt, Ikue Mori, and Zeena Parkins. The delicate mesh of electric and acoustic, ethnic and urban, traditional and experimental, sets up a mesmerizing dynamic in the music.”-Intakt
