Bill Frisell - This Land



Bill Frisell es uno de los pocos guitarristas que tiene un sonido verdaderamente único, distintivo, que recuerda al de un pedal steel. Su música es muy representativa de Norteamérica y reune distintos géneros: americana, jazz, rock, blues y country. En This Land, además de sus asiduos colaboradores Kermit Driscoll y Joey Baron en la sección rítmica, incluye la presencia de tres ejecutantes de intrumentos de viento: Don Byron en clarinete y clarinete bajo, Billy Drewes en saxo alto y Curtis Foulkes en trombón. Es muy atractiva la forma en que los mismos actúan como sostén armónico dejando el papel de solista a Frisell, o tocando líneas melódicas al unísono con él. Entre mis favoritas: la tensa calma de Strange Meeting, la alegre Amarillo Barbados, el blues dedicado a Julius Hemphill y la muy bonita Rag.

man i love joey baron. expressive. thoughtful. inventive. crisp. soulful. melody conscious. what more could you want from a drummer?

Yes, he has a richness and a rare variety of blows which relates to his percusive style of playing the drums. Do you hear Bill Frisell's Live? He shines on that album, perhaps my preferred by the guitarist, the same way that makes it in Masada. If you don't have it let me know that I will upload it. Thanks archer.
