An eclectic CD by composer and fretless guitarist Tom Baker, featuring new compositions by Baker and Christian Asplund, with arrangements of the Bill Evans tune Peace Piece and the Mort Dixon tune Bye Bye Blackbird. Pieces for electric fretless guitar, classical fretless guitar, and one piece for 12-string fretless guitar with three cacti! A truly unique record!
No succulents were harmed in the making of this record.
On this record, Tom played a classical fretless guitar by David Boehlke (modified by Paul Stroh), a Fender Stratocaster with a fretless rosewood fingerboard by Warmouth Guitars, a Fernandez Native Pro fretless retrofitted with a glass fingerboard, and a 12-string fretless guitar of unknown origin (modified by a pair of pliers and some wood glue.)
