    Chapters is a duo recording with drummer Chris Vatalaro. It finds them together in an intimate setting, remembering the live room-spirit of 60’s jazz records, but painting with a full array of guitar, drums, and electronics. Chapters is a series of short, listenable pieces in a reflective and honest mood, some of which are relaxed interpretations of classic jazz repertoire, some of which are electroacoustic improvisations.

    Jonathan Bratoeff: Guitar
    Chris Vatalaro: Drums

    REVIEWS

    31/07/2009 John Fordham, The Guardian

    "... in textural variety, melodic and rhythmic invention, and sheer nerve - are way outside the usual loop.a mix of electroacoustic odysseys and oblique variations on familiar jazz vehicles. Minimal melodic movements hum against simmering drum tattoos, animatedly lyrical chords, jazzy fills and enigmatic motifs over pattering brushwork, or electronic gurgles over softly smacking grooves."

    Ian Mann The Jazzman
    “Chapters is a success on it’s own terms and is well worthy of investigation by inquisitive listeners. Frisell fans in particular should give this album a go”.
