Bill Frisell-The Best of Bill Frisell, Vol. 1: Folk Songs

Bill Frisell The Best of Bill Frisell, Vol. 1: Folk Songs:

Beautiful renditions of tunes from all aspects of American folk musics. Frisell  and his backing musicians manage to recreate everything from country, to blues, to Appalachian music while adding some sly notes and modifications of there own. Frisell’s movement away from jazz and towards folk is an interesting and potentially bad choice, and on this disk its clear that it was well worth the risk.
