In a celebrated career spanning more than 30 years and over 200 recordings, including over 30 albums of his own, guitarist, composer and bandleader Bill Frisell has established himself as a visionary presence in American music.  He has collaborated with a wide range of artists, filmmakers and legendary musicians too numerous to mention.  But it is his work as a leader that has garnered increasing attention and accolades.  Frisell’s recordings over the last decades span a wide range of musical influences.  His catalog has been cited by Downbeat as “the best recorded output of the decade.”  The New York Times 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."   The Philadelphia Inquirer has declared, “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.”
