Though Bill Frisell's standing was never in doubt, this two-disc live set further confirms the guitarist's position as one of the most talented, flexible, and innovative musicians of his generation. Frisell has worked with almost every ensemble configuration imaginable, so it's something of a treat to hear him perform in a trio here; the setting truly shows off his improvisatory breadth and sensitivity to interplay.
The two discs--recorded at gigs on the East and West coasts, respectively--feature drummer Kenny Wollensen, and bassists Viktor Krauss and Tony Scherr (Krauss plays on one disc, Scherr on the other). This fine company aids Frisell on a genre-hopping journey that includes extended treatments of traditional material ("Goodnight Irene"), folk ("A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall"), country ("Tennessee Flat Top Box"), and R&B ("I Heard It Through the Grapevine"). The sensibility here is extremely progressive, and the playing is top-notch, resulting in a superb set of first-rate contemporary jazz.
