Playing acoustic guitar and presenting mostly his own compositions, Joe Henry found an ideal partner in Bill Frisell, whose electric guitar work added harmonies and subtle sonic colors. The notable reportorial exception was a version of “One For My Baby (“And One More For The Road)” that was more reminiscent of Tom Waits than Frank Sinatra.

Watch an 'all star' performance of 'Sitting on top of the world'.

A wonderful version of 'Eyes out for you', together with Bill Frisell.

Listen to a podcast where Joe talks with David Crosby about the 'art of recordmaking'.
