Bill Frisell is an American guitarist and composer. One of the leading guitarists in jazz since the late '80s Frisell's eclectic music touches on progressive folk, classical music, country music, noise and more. He is known for using an array of effects (delay, distortion, reverb, octave shifters, and volume pedals, to name a few) to create unique sounds from his instrument.
Since then Frisell has released more than a dozen recordings that defy easy categorization. Often called a jazz guitarist, Frisell's original compositions reflect influences from Bill Evans, Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk to The Beatles, Frank Zappa and Jimi Hendrix. He has also recorded folk, blues and jazz standards and musical scores for movies. A big hit with jazz and guitar critics, Frisell's other recordings include Rambler (1984); Is That You? (1989); Have a Little Faith (1992); Quartet (1996); Nashville (1997); Deep Dead Blue (1998); Good Dog Happy Man (1999); and The Willies (2002).
