Frisell, Godsey, Ales- Safety In Numbers

It's no longer safe here.

Guitarist Bill Frisell was paired with Lee Konitz at a concert I attended Saturday night. As I wrote in my review of the show, it was improvisational music of the highest order. On this obscure 1995 session of manipulated industrial noise, Frisell produces dramatically different sounds than he did with the legendary saxophonist. It's a vivid demonstration of the ugly beauty at the core of Frisell's brilliance.
