ELVIS COSTELLO & BILL FRISELL DEEP DEAD BLUE-LIVE AT MELTDOWN Limited 180gram Audiophile Vinyl LP

Overview:
A lovely, understated exercise in minimalism, Deep Dead Blue documents a set of otherwise unaccompanied guitar/vocal duets between Bill Frisell and Elvis Costello, recorded live at the Meltdown Festival in London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall on June
25, 1995. Frisell co-wrote the title track, one of the five songs bearing a Costello credit; the others are underexposed items from Costello’s mid- to late-’80s catalog, plus selections by Charles Mingus (“Weird Nightmare”) and Lerner & Loewe (“Gigi”).

Costello is once again the refined, mature vocal stylist of Painted From Memory, but Frisell expertly controls the dynamics of each piece, often stripping his part down to single-note lines, which lends surprising emotional impact when he allows full chords to wash over Costello’s voice.
