Chris Whitley - Hotel Vast Horizon

With Hotel Vast Horizon, Whitley returns to more bare settings. The music is created by Whitley (playing guitar and banjo) with bassist Heiko Schramm and drummer Matthias Macht. And though the instrumentation is traditional, he manages to retain a fundamental strangeness throughout, almost defined by the absence of further arrangement. The results are not easy listening, but they are deeply compelling.
