You ever notice how difficult it is to get a good look at a tropical fish while walking around the tank? How the water and glass distort and bend the light? Well, Bill Frisell performs the musical equivalent here on Willie Nelson's “Crazy.” Chords are bent out of shape while the sense of time expands and contracts. It's almost like Frisell has figured out how to simulate one of those kiddie hand-crank guitars...and I mean that in a good way! I sure hope Willie's got a sense of humor.
