Certain artists play themselves through their instruments. In a strange way their instruments are peripheral to their performances and their compositions are vehicles for their passing humours. In these sixteen short pieces for electric guitar and effects Frisell presents a summation of a musical and more urgently a personal vision. Like Bach's "Well Tempered Clavier" or Coltrane's "A Love Supreme", this suite dwells in the essence of it's creator and seeks to expand the range of an instrument by expanding the range of performance and technique, and ultimately expanding the range of perception and awareness. Frisell's "Music Is" could also be titled Music "Frisell Is".
