Bookmark and Share

Bill Frisell has the right idea about nostalgia. And that is, you don't truck with it in its pure form, which is a social pursuit (it's good for parties and bar games and little else). In its impure form, as in this great Frisell disc, it can be as delightful as it gets and something far greater.

"I turned 63 last spring," Frisell explains in the accompanying publicity. "And after playing for more than 50 years, it just feels right to once again play some of the music which shaped my consciousness during my formative years, even to play some of it for the first time … and maybe get it right. Guitar in the Space Age isn't really an exercise in nostalgia but about a recommitment to keep learning, to firm up the foundation and showcase one of the best bands I ever had."
