After my first few listens, I AM INSPIRED. Mr. Frisell is generally acknowledged as one of the best jazz guitarists around... do not let that turn you away from his music. He can not be stuffed in a pidgeonhole quite so easily and has indeed played and recorded music of a great many genres. He seems to incorporate all of this great music be it classical, country, funk or psychedelic into one entity. His music is heartfelt and informed by what is best about jazz...free expression with intelligence and sensativity not stuffy traditionalism. The only reason I will not give it five stars is that I probably need to listen to it many, many more times.

Ah Bill, the Explorer

While the album contains the regular number of so called "filler" songs, the unfettered creativity and depth with which Bill expresses his ideas is incredibly inpired. Perhaps I am biased, since I buy every record he puts out (about 2 1/2 per year). After meeting him at clinic in Brooklyn, NY of this year, I was privileged enough to speak with him about his albums. Regarding Unspeakable, and considering the number of different musicians combined, "with all the studio tricks" as he put it- he found the experience quite enjoyable- IT SHOWS ON THIS RECORD. A welcome addition to the Bill Frisell discography. I love listening to this record while running through the Georgia Botanical Gardens.
