One man orchestra

Frisell's ability to loop and improvise in real time is not a unique talent. What makes him truly incredible is that his loops and improvisations are so musical, original and mesmerizing. This collection is some of the best music I've heard from anybody, anywhere in a long time. The fact that it was recorded off the floor, no over-dubs is remarkable. Thank you Bill Frisell.

the ghost of Henry Mancini says hello...

I’ve only listened to one track so far — listed as no. 12 My Man’s Gone Now. So, as much as I love Gershwin, and was secretly hoping for a cover that could stand up to the masterful Jim Hall/Bill Evans version, what we have here is Mancini’s Days of Wine and Roses, a long-time Frisell favorite. And a glorious version it is, too. Now I’ll be downloading the rest of this set, ready for more surprises.

Bill Frisell has a sound that all at once sooths, haunts, and inspires a deep sense of nostalgia. It's so wonderful to FINALLY hear Mr. Frisell in a true solo setting, creating his patent loops and gorgeous melodies that literally sweep you into a different mental plane. Words cannot highly recommend this collection, and to any true musician looking to hear a genius at his most initimate... look no further. God bless you Mr. Frisell.

For example, a saxophonist has virtually unlimited physical control of the sound that comes through his horn, and therefore a wide range of tonal expression at his command, which partially explains the disproportionate number of saxophonists in the pantheon of great jazz musicians.
