Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Initially conceived as a solo guitar album made up of jazz standards, Meltframe is comprised of modern compositions long admired by Mary Halvorson, the oldest being Duke Ellington's "Solitude." The remainder of the pieces date from the early 1960s, through to Tomas Fujiwara's contemporary "When."
