Appreciation …

… Bill Frisell: The ‘favourite guitarist of many people who agree on little else’. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

By creating music that is free-moving yet deep-rooted, Frisell has forged something entirely distinctive and of itself, a sound that, even after one note, is unmistakably his and his alone. And by steadfastly following his own path, Frisell has become the most unlikely of guitar heroes, an unexpected agent of change who has inspired others to expand their view of what jazz and music can be.
