JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2011 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Bill Frisell at Rochester Internation Jazz Festival

Bill Frisell opened with some really gnarly, prog stuff and then settled into one of his trademark, lazy, country blues things but the band never really gelled for me. I was always aware of the parts, Frisells restrained control, the plunked violin, the scattershot drums and I couldn't hear the whole. It all felt rather tedious. We spotted Bob Martin in usual Frisell spot, right behind the sound board. He said he was having dinner with Frisell between sets. Maybe he'll have the skinny. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
