Bill Frisell

It's rare that such an artistic maverick as Bill Frisell should be such a soft spoken and humble man. He's never one to sing his own praises, yet this truly gifted jazz guitarist has always followed his own muse, quietly gaining more and more fans with each passing year by combining avant garde improvisational jazz with bluegrass, folk and rock. It's to Frisell's credit that his music never sounds like a fusion of styles but seems completely natural and organic. He can bombard the listener with sound or stretch out with soft melodic tunes but that naturalness runs through all his work and may be the key to his success. It's gratifying that the public has embraced Frisell's music -- there is still room for excellence and experimentation in mainstream America after all.
