Steve Tibbetts & Knut Hamre - Å (1999)
Previously on OPIUM HUM:
Steve Tibbetts - Steve Tibbetts (1977) + Yr (1980)
Steve Tibbetts - The Fall of Us All (1994)
A collaboration between experimental fusion guitarist Steve Tibbetts (one of my all-time favorite artists) and Norwegian fiddle player Knut Hamre. Anyone familiar with Steve Tibbetts will find this album instantly familiar. Every composition seems to be built on his loose, shimmering guitars and longtime collaborator Marc Anderson's understated percussion, but here, they're filled out by the warm drone of Nordic fiddle, as well as some cello and harp. Gorgeous stuff.
