Bill Frisell Quartet: Look Out For Hope (ECM)
Gene Santoro, Spin, May 1988
BILL FRISELL IS the Clark Kent of the electric guitar. Soft-spoken and self-effacing in conversation, he apparently breathes in lungfuls of raw fire when he straps on the battered Gibson SG he holds together with tape and a prayer, plugs it into a dizzying assortment of delay loops and reverb and distortion pedals, turns on his small Marshall amp, and starts to play.
