"How did you ever find your way into this obscure and dark cul-de-sac on Amazon? You must be lost. If not, welcome to "American Blood/Safety in Numbers." Everybody has their own story about how they arrived here. Most likely, you found this strange place because you're lost. If not, it's because you're a fan of Bill Frisell or Brian Ales. The music on "American Blood/Safety in Numbers" is as odd as the cover's art work. The recording is composed of two separate projects put together on one disc. There's probably a really fascinating story behind this, but that's neither here nor there. I'm sure that the title has some profound root in the paranoia of the American psyche, but again that's speculation. The tracks are composed of odd instrumental music and spoken word played behind an even stranger soundtrack. This is not a very 'listenable' disc as it sounds like the three musicians entered the studio, got really high and released the fruits of their session. So what's my excuse -how did I come here? I'm a Bill Frisell nerd. For Frisellians, there's much satisfaction. Heck, even 'Gone, Just Like a Train' is played on this baby. If you're a completist by either member of this trio, you will want to take this Avant-garde journey into spacey rock and spoken word."
