Bill Frisell: Blues Dream (Nonesuch)
Gene Santoro, Chamber Music, June 2001
WITH BLUES DREAM (Nonesuch), an album that interprets the blues as the foundation for jazz, bluegrass, Thelonious Monk, soul, Western Swing, heavy metal, and other styles, guitar hero Bill Frisell closes several circles in his life and music. Or, more accurately, he opens a spiral of possibilities that, viewed two-dimensionally, looks like circles being closed.
