Half Notes: Marc Ribot – The Lost String DVD (2008)

by Mark Saleski

Anybody out there who has been paying attention to my writings may have noticed that the name Marc Ribot has appeared almost as many times as Pat Metheny. Though the two guitar players are nothing alike, they do take up a considerable amount of my shelf space. Ribot seems to specialize in confounding the listener with his oddball twists on everything from traditional jazz to country blues. “The Lost String” was a documentary by French film maker Anais Prosaic about Ribot and the downtown New York music scene. If you, like me, are Marc Ribot fanatic (I own and actually listen to Book of Heads), this is an absolute must have. Sometimes, being confounded is a good thing.

‘Half Notes’ are quick-take thoughts on music from Something Else! Reviews, presented whenever the mood strikes us.
