Bill Frisell is an American guitarist, composer and arranger that grew up in the
Denver area. He studied guitar with Johnny Smith at Northern Colorado University
and then with Jim Hall and Jon Damian at the Berklee College of Music. Frisell’s
first major break came when guitarist Pat Metheny had to miss a recording
session and recommended Bill to Paul Motian who was recording Psalm for ECM

first solo release was In Line on ECM in 1983. Soon after, he moved to New York
and forged a partnership with John Zorn and his band Naked City. He also became
known for his work with Paul Motian’s trio, along with saxophonist Joe Lovano.
In 1988, Bill moved to Seattle, where he has been ever since. In the early 90s
he released two of his best-reviewed albums: Have A Little Faith and This Land.

bluegrass and country music into his work. His friendship with cartoonist Gary
Larson led him to provide music for the TV version of The Far Side.
Nashville is Bill’s ninth album and his first to be recorded in Nashville, TN.
The album was recorded at Sound Emporium between 1995–1996 and released April
29, 1997 on Nonesuch Records. It features performances by Viktor Krauss, Jerry
Douglas, Ron Block and Adam Steffey, with guest appearances from Robin Holcomb
on vocals and Pat Bergeson on harmonica. The All Music review by Jason Ankeny
gave the album 4 1/2 stars, saying “the record is both genuine and
alien—while played with real affection for the country form and without any
avant posturing, its sound is original and distinct, a cinematic variation on
