Editors’ Notes Bill Frisell is one of modern music’s most respected guitarists, with a moody sound and technique that can be ID’d within seconds of hearing it. With a grade-A backing group of bassist Tony Scherr, drummer/vibraphonist Kenny Wollesen, and guitar/pedal steel whiz Greg Leisz, Frisell tackles some famous songs and many instrumentals, giving them an extended instrumental workout. “Pipeline” is expanded into a seven-minute trip. “Turn, Turn, Turn” uses The Byrds’ interpretation and stretches its common phrases into suspended time. Brian Wilson’s “Surfer Girl” has its gorgeous melody brought to the surface. A stunning, stirring collection worth every moment.
