"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." -- The New York Times

"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." -- The Philadelphia Inquirer

Described as being at the very epicenter of modern American Music" (BBC), Bill Frisell's career as a guitarist and composer has spanned more than 35 years and 250 recordings, including 40 of his own. Frisell's recording catalog has been cited by Downbeat as "the best recorded output of the decade," including his recent albums for Savoy -- Sign of Life with the 858 Quartet, Beautiful Dreamers with his trio, and All We Are Saying, a new collection of John Lennon interpretations.
