It’s a Free Country is bridge between country music and free improvisation, both to the listeners and performer, providing a vehicle for expression and connection not always otherwise available independently in these styles. It’s a Free Country exemplifies this approach – ranging from beautiful arranged melodies, to interjections of extended techniques, to raucous free playing, often treading the line between deadly serious and humourous.
