Frisell's ("Strange Meeting")
I'm a pretty big Bill fan and seen three times live - the most
recent was in Erie, PA this past May with the Unspeakable Orchestra.
Shy? Hell, yes. I think at all the concerts he said about
three words other than introducing the band. I got backstage at
concet #2 (art gallery in Buffalo w/ tony schear and joey baron ) and got
a few more words out of him but joey was a riot.
Bill's pretty mellow - not sure if it's from too much pot or what;
in a few interviews I've read he does come across as rather articulate - maybe
he puts an effort into them...
I've got about 2 dozen of his cd's - either as leader, co-leader, or
a guest. My favourites are probably "Have A Little Faith" and "This
Land" (which have the same players on them and I've always viewed them
together as a double album) but he had a really great run of Nashville, Gone
Just Like a Train and Good Man Happy Dog. The recent live album - East
West - is also a keeper.
