Marc Ribot: Saints

Marc Ribot is a guitarist-bandleader known for distinctive arrangements and striking improvisations. In "Saints," he interprets works from experimental composers, soloists, and his own songbook to create a solo guitar CD that has a sparse and alluring appeal. Ribot says juxtaposing more experimental pieces with standards from various idioms makes the listener hear both in new ways. He’s right.
