iTunes Editors’ Notes

Guitarist Bill Frisell’s All We Are Saying . . . honors John Lennon’s legacy by shedding new light on the singer/songwriter’s oeuvre. (The album draws from Lennon’s solo career as well as his work with The Beatles.) Frisell and his band vary their approach from song to song, giving each piece a distinctive flavor. Violinist Jenny Scheinman, bassist Tony Scherr, and drummer Kenny Wollesen are all subtle improvisers who are no strangers to rock and pop, and Greg Leisz’s steel guitar is a perfect complement to Frisell’s folk- and country-tinged playing. “Across the Universe” features fiddle and guitar interpreting the tune with a dreamy delicacy, while “Revolution” manages to make some noise and wear a country vibe with pride. “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away” has an easygoing, rural psych feel, and “Love” is rendered as a spare duet for guitar and violin. Strange timbres mark the opening of “Mother,” and the melody’s guitar statement doesn’t shy from tapping into the original’s emotional power. The album includes a bonus track: a lovely acoustic guitar version of “Strawberry Fields.”

Customer Reviews

Sorry Bill, but....

I've been a fan of Bill's for years, own all his recordings and have seen him many times. But, I found this to be a high level of Muzak. Nice but predictable and boring.

All my favorites

Like most people that know what's good for them, I'm a huge fan of the Beatles. I'm also a huge fan of Bill Frisell, especially when he plays with Jenny Scheinman, Greg Leisz, Kenny Wollesen, and Tony Scherr, and on this album you can hear how much they love the music of the Beatles and John Lennon as well. Their interpretations are very relatable while still sounding totally unique. Do yourself a favor and buy this album.

EVERY LENNON FAN ALIVE,THIS IS A MUST HAVE

Absolutely brillant , up beat jazz.....Mr.Frisell,Thank You. This isjust too good not to own!!!

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

The defining characteristic of any given jazz musician is frequently his sound. The more control a player has over the nature of that sound, the more likely he is to project a distinctive musical personality. 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.
