Bill Frisell ‘Four’


The guitarist and composer’s third album for Blue Note Records, Four, is a stunning 13-track meditation on loss, renewal, and friendships, proffering new interpretations of previously recorded Frisell originals as well as nine new tunes.

Produced by Lee Townsend, the session brings together a new line-up of musical friends, independent spirits, and like minds: Blue Note stablemates Gerald Clayton on piano and Johnathan Blake on drums, and longtime collaborator Greg Tardy on saxophone, clarinet, and bass clarinet. Listen below to ‘Waltz for Hal Willner’, a heartfelt tribute to Frisell’s dear friend.

Aspects of Four reflect Frisell’s affection for Americana and skilled saturation of blues. But what’s poised to give the record its staying is less tangible. “The album is capturing this first moment in time when we were, all four, together, playing these songs,” he says. “Music is incredible that way because we’ll never play these songs this way again.”
