Bill Frisell: A Portrait

Bill Frisell: A Portrait ★★★★½

This docu was incredibly inspiring to me. The way Bill Frisell approaches music is so open, free of judgement, and as someone in the movie put it, "elastic, or like rubber." I totally agree. For me, he's one of those guitar players that never seems to fight the instrument. He and his guitar always seem to be in a state of harmony, even when in great /musical/ tension. I also especially liked the bit where they re-approached some of his sketches from years past in a trio format... it just goes to show how interesting his random ideas are. Working on understanding Jim Hall as well as he does :P. I love this guy and his expansive body of work! The documentary itself wasn't formally great, though, had to dock 1/2!
