Bill Frisell is a genius of guitar tone, the master of his own sound. Finally, a playlist that shows the various sides of this genius, from acoustic and mellow borderline country guitar to nasty avant electric almost pedal-steel like guitar. Where so many conventional jazz guitarists define themselves by how many notes they can play, Frisell has carved his niche by the notes he does not play, making every one virtuous and perfect. Albums like the 'Tales From the Far Side' Quartet and Nashville and Bill Frisell with Dave Holland and Elvin Jones are different and equally palatable and beautiful, depending on your mood. If you're not familiar with Bill, dive in and turn up the tonemaster. - TK
