Bill Frisell, left, talks with William Ellis, professor in the music department at St. Michael's College, during a "Meet the Artist" session in FlynnSpace as part of the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival on June 7, 2018.  An audience member mentioned how unique the guitar giant's tone is, and that he sounds like no other musician. Frisell said he must be failing, because he has always aspired toward the greats; he said he's just playing at them rather than playing like them. Then he went on stage a few hours later for the first of two sold-out shows at FlynnSpace and proved that he indeed sounds like no other, alternately melodic and dissonant, jazzy and western twangy, clear as a raindrop and murky as a cloud. Frisell, it turns out, is one of those greats others aspire to emulate.(Photo: BRENT HALLENBECK/FREE PRESS)
