Frisell, Bill: Silent Comedy (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Bill Frisell, one of the most influential and respected guitarists in the world today takes a serious step toward the avant-garde to create a solo guitar CD unlike anything you've heard before. Filled with complex harmonies, bizarre voicings, rich orchestral sonorities, intense screams, delicate phrasing, wild noises and an incredible simultaneity, Silent Comedy raises the bar on what is possible from a solo guitarist. You will never think of Bill Frisell in the same way again-revelatory and absolutely riveting!"-Tzadik
