    Bill Frisell is fantastic! I love his "Nashville" CD and his old ECM stuff. I've seen him live 6 times over the years including a solo improve show and was just blown away.

    Yeah. He was actually a big influence on me in the late 80s when I was
    into a lot of the jazzier fusion cats. Got me into John Zorn, even if now
    I wonder how I ever listened to that stuff! But, Before We Were Born
    still in the iPod.

    Yeah. Zorn certainly isn't casual listening material. The thing I dig about Frisell is that, of all the people associated with Zorn, he was the one who didn't turn his back on melody, especially in recent years. Whereas Zorn and everyone from that "downtown" scene got really atonal (and, IMO, unlistenable), Frisell got much more accessible.
