Lagrimas Mexicanas

Lagrimas Mexicanas by Bill Frisell
Released: Jan 2011
Label: eOne Music
Guitarist Bill Frisell and Brazil's Vinicius Cantuaria are both masters of letting the spiky edges show in otherwise sumptuously beautiful pieces. On this collaboration, the two pay tribute to New York City's large Latin American expat community. The "tears" in the title come out as a sense of yearning and slight displacement, as if these alternately gorgeous and driving tunes were performed around a campfire on the roof of an urban apartment building. Final track "Forinfas" has an American/French swing swagger to it, making it sound like the "outsiders" have suddenly made themselves at home.
