Jeff Parkers solo guitar album Forfolks includes interpretations of Thelonious Monk's "Ugly Beauty" and the standard "My Ideal," plus six original compositions: two earlier tunes, "Four Folks" and "La Jete," and four new loop-driven, stratiform works that marry melodic improvisation with electronic textures. "He eschews genre playing and chooses a painterly approach to coloring the music," longtime collaborator Matthew Lux writes in the liner note, "maintaining a deeply personal voice without weighing down the music with obvious stylistic maneuverings."
