Bill Orcutt by Bill Orcutt.

Solo electric guitar recordings of theme and variation on various American songs.

From Ornette Coleman’s Lonely Woman through to Francis Scott Key’s Star Spangled Banner, largely Orcutt takes intervals from the songs and creates melodic variations on their themes over the chords. Jazz, in other words, but not. Compelling, original, and moving.
