Bill Frisell - Salzau 2006 & Berlin 2005

Here's one more by Bill Frisell, again in MP2 format - a long and beautiful set by Frisell's quintet with Ron Miles and the great Gregory Tardy (check him out playing on two stunning Andrew Hill concerts here).

Frisell is a musician I'm slowly but surely getting into... it took me a while to get over his high gloss sound, but I'm there now, as I'm slowly also digging into what I guess one best calls "Americana" of various sorts.
Anyway, Frisell has been doing so much, trios, quintets, the great Bacharach project, his great Intercontinentals band, collaborations with almost everyone (Kenny Wheeler's fabulous "Angel Song" on ECM, a trio with Elvin Jones & Dave Holland, Paul Motian, Eberhard Weber, Hank Roberts, Tim Berne, various projects with John Zorn, Marc Johnson's Bass Desires, Julius Hemphill, Marianne Faithful, Joe Lovano, Lee Konitz, Ginger Baker, Joey Baron, Seigen Ohno, Elvis Costello... the list could go on and on for quite a while!)
As you know I dig this kind of multi-faceted approach, so I guess it was only a question of time until I stumble over Frisell...
