Anthony Wilson, best known as a jazz guitarist, has released an organic, occasionally “noir-ish”, sounding album on which he sets up and sings within cinematic musical landscapes, proving himself to be an equally compelling story teller. “Frogtown” is an area of Los Angeles, whose official name is “Elysian Valley”. People live there but other than a lush stretch of the L.A. riverbed, there’s not much there, which is how the people like it. The same can’t be said of this record, which will have you wondering from where came this Anthony Wilson?
