Bill Frisell made his recording debut as a leader for ECM in 1982, establishing himself immediately as a highly individual voice. His unique sound and phrasing have also been creatively deployed on recordings with Jan Garbarek, Paul Motian, Paul Bley, Kenny Wheeler and many others. Frisell’s own influence transcends the guitar world. Composer Gavin Bryars based one of his pieces on a melodic fragment from a Frisell tune: that composition is included here, as are some of the guitarist’s brightest moments from his early recordings. Frisell: “I’ve had so much encouragement from so many people, helping to get my music out there. I’m so grateful to Manfred Eicher and ECM for being such a big part of it.”
