Loops as techniques extension, was Re: Frisell

I think its called). but loops are a big part of his sound these days.
they are kinda rudementary from a looper's perspective, but ground
breaking from a jazz stand point. -chris
There aint a damn thang "rudimentary" about Frisell's loops! Anymore
than his guitar playing is "rudimentary" :-) If you see him perform
live you can really appreciate the consumate skill with which he
approaches looping as an extenstion of his guitar. The only other person
I can think of who has such a seemless loop technique would be David
Torn. Course, that Nels Cline aint no slouch either...
