Has anyone heard The Sweetest Punch, The Bill Frissell version of this album? I bought it yesterday by accident. I meant to get the original as above. That's what I get for not looking closer. I knew about the other version but I momentarily forgot. Anyway it has a lot of great musicians on it including many that have played with Frissell as well as a few jazzers and a guest vocal by Cassandra Wilson. I'm still going to buy the other one but it will be interesting coming from the direction of a mostly instrumental interpretation of the album. Elvis says Bill nailed it but I guess I won't know until I get the other one.
