Re: Bill Frisell a master at work.. some great use of looping

sorry that I'm chiming in way late here....

What I like most about Bill is that he's one of the few people that I think transcends the instrument - it doesn't matter what effects he's using if at all (he's always changing them up but the DL4 has been very constant) or what kind of guitar (which he's also changing pretty regularly), he's going to sound like Bill.

I've been a BF fan since I bought "Before We Were Born" and Marc Johnson's Bass Desires "Second Sight" on vinyl on a trip into Toronto in late '80's.  Seen him four times live and each was great...

That "Poem for Eva" clip is from his "Solo" dvd which is absolutely fantastic - great sound, great playing.  It's a few years old but it still kicks ass.  Do yourself a favour and buy it - http://www.billfrisell.com/merch/frisellsolodvd.htm

Rick - was that band you saw Bill with Stone Tiger?  Percy Jones on bass and either Mike Clark or Dougie Brown on drums...

Charles - that's a great story about you and Bill going for the Les Paul.  I've got a good Bill story but it's too long for here...

Or would you sing somethin' different. Somethin' real. Somethin' *you* felt. Cause I'm telling you right now, that's the kind of song people want to hear. That's the kind of song that truly saves people. It ain't got nothin to do with believin' in God, Mr. Cash. It has to do with believin' in yourself. Sam Phillips, "Walk the Line"

I rest my case with this, if someone doesnt "understand the greatness"

Then so be it :-D each to his/her own etc
