Re: Monsters of Loop - Bill Frisell

Of course there is some great Utube stuff on Cobra  which Is one of his game pieces Cobra, Xu Feng, and Lacrosse. It is a method of improvising. I don't know about derived compositions but the process sure carrys into Naked City and even Electric Masada if you have ever seen them. I love the concert movie "Nancy Jazz Pulsations: Electric Masada". Breathtaking!
sorry, getting OT again.

Wasn't the Naked City stuff all COBRA derived compositions?

Hard to tell how much looping but alot of very cool stuff by all. Intense! The first half is long compositions with the second half very short tunes of many styles, I mean Many!
