What will you listen to?

I like Gone, Just Like a Train and History Mystery the best

Hmm, I've been meaning to check out Small Town so I guess I'll start there. But I've never heard GJLAT before, and I like the cover art, so I'll give that a whirl next.

Small Town is a lovely little album. Great atmosphere for puttering around and checking a bunch of things off my to-do list.

Love Bill Frisell -- saw him live with his trio last year in what was essentially an old abandoned warehouse, I could have listened to him all night without getting bored.

I have quite a few of his albums, but haven't really ventured back into his 80's/ECM stuff, which is apparently a bit wilder and has roots in noise/free jazz that is largely absent from his work over the past 30-ish years. My favorite albums always tend to be the ones that put the focus on his guitar playing rather than his octet/nonet arrangements, but I'm yet to hear one I don't like. Some top fives? Sure.

Albums:
Gone, Just Like a Train
East/West
Bill Frisell, Ron Carter, and Paul Motian
History/Mystery
Small Town

Songs:
Probability Cloud (from History, Mystery)
The Pioneers (from Good Dog, Happy Man)
Live to Tell (Madonna cover) (from Have a Little Faith)
We All Love Neil Young (from Big Sur)
Pipeline (Chantays cover) (from Guitar in the Space Age)

Listening to History, Mystery today. It's really fantastic, but I think I prefer the more ambient vibe of Small Town over the more melodic approach on this one (though both are great and will get lots of replays). Which albums are more like Small Town?

A Change Is Gonna Come is my favorite track on this one.

"Ghost Town" and his new one "Music Is" are both Bill alone with his guitars and loops. "Ambient" is probably the best word to describe both, though the presence of the bass on "Small Town" gives Bill more of a foundation to solo -- the others are a bit more driven by layering and composition.

Also try the trio records "East/West" and "Bill Frisell, Ron Carter, and Paul Motian," if you enjoy records that have a heavy guitar presence with minimal but supportive backing. Bill's distinct musical personality can sometimes get lost in larger ensembles, great as some of those records are.

I saw him a few weeks ago, pretty much right before the shit hit the fan. He was playing with Petra Haden singing. We were sitting right in front of a row of old ladies and they HATED him. It was both annoying and hilarious at the same time. There was one song Haden sang a cappella and they gave her pretty much a standing ovation before going back to bickering when Bill joined again.

I really enjoyed Good Dog... this morning

Good Dog, Happy Man is probably my favorite of the handful of albums that I've heard multiple times. Where else might you point me?

I listened to his Americana album earlier today and was blown away. What a phenomenal record. Easily the best "instrumental" album I've heard this year so far.

Are you referring to the Gregoire Maret album?

If so, hard agree -- I would never have guessed that an instrumental album featuring harmonica as the lead instrument could be so lovely.

His other new album from this year, Valentine, is quite nice as well -- he plays less of a supporting role on that one. Love his trio's take on "What the World Needs Now."

Yes, that's the album. Just outstanding.

I'll probably throw on Valentine later today.
