Bill Frisell

In a career spanning more than 30 years and over 200 recordings, including more than 30 albums of his own, guitarist, composer, and bandleader Bill Frisell is now firmly established as a visionary presence in American music.  He has collaborated with a wide range of artists, filmmakers and legendary musicians.  But it is his work as a leader that has garnered the most attention and accolades.  The New York Times has described Frisell’s music this way:  “It’s hard to find a more fruitful meditation on American music than in the compositions of guitarist Bill Frisell.  Mixing rock and country with jazz and blues, he’s found what connects them: improvisation and a sense of play.  Unlike other pastichists, who tend to duck passion, Mr. Frisell plays up the pleasure in the music and also takes on another often-avoided subject, tenderness.” As the Philadelphia Inquirer has noted, “Frisell is a revered figure among musicians – like Miles Davis and few others, his signature is built from pure sound and inflection; an anti-technique that is instantly identifiable.”
