Bill Frisell – This Land

I used to listen to Bill Frisell’s stuff from the library, when we lived in Saskatoon a decade ago. I couldn’t tell you now whether I heard this one then or not. But I remembered liking what I heard a whole lot, so when this turned up in the thrift shop, I grabbed it up.

And what a score this was! The music here is all over the map, with jazz, blues, country, and many others besides, all of it playful, all of it gorgeous. The internet tells me that he’d expanded his usual trio to a sextet for this album, which filled out the sound considerably (of course).

This album is restlessly playful. The music is full of energy, and each player nails it perfectly. You know, it’s the best improv music that holds itself together without crashing, and this is among the greatest albums of its kind I’ve heard in a long time. It’s challenging and pleasing all at once.
