    Great videos, nicely performed. Better leave my guitar in the case so as not to embarrass myself.

    Good for him, seems he’s using even fewer gadgets these days. He had a rack setup the last time I saw him, a long time ago, but that might have been his avant-rock era. Thanks for posting!

    I can always dig a Bill Frisell appreciation thread!

    Maybe the "avant rock" comment referred to projects like John Zorn's Naked City?:

    The first two Bill Frisell records I got when I was in college in the mid-90s were Have a LIttle Faith and The High Sign/One Week: Music for the Films of Buster Keaton. I still love both of them. I also really dig the album Disfarmer, with Jenny Scheinman on violin.

    "IS THAT YOU?" is a rock'n noizfest, comparatively speaking. So are the collabs with Ginger Baker. Just edgier in general, regardless of genre. Not a connoisseur, but I know what I like.

    I saw him perform this piece at the Ellnora Guitar Festival.
