    I had a chance to catch BF at Terapin Cross Roads in San Rafael. What an outstanding show. Two hours of instrumental music with no wankery. Greg Leisz was just as remarkable as Bill. The drummer and bassist were excellent to (don't know their names). Really fine tasteful playing. I'd say it's one of the best shows in recent memory. Don't miss them if they come to your town.

    I caught him on his "Big Sur" tour. It was like he and the other musicians were wired into each other. Absolutely sublime!

    I'd love to see them....that CD is one of my favorites and I've been spinning it quite a bit in the last few months. :)

    Saw him with Greg and Charles Lloyd Tues night in Santa Barbara
    Last song was "I'm so lonesome I could cry" kicked of by Chales on the sax

    Sublime indeed

    I caught the Seattle show. Great!

    I woulda given a set of my teeth to have seen that show. I managed to see Lloyd when I was 18 and he made a huge impression me. Just lately I've downloaded a few of those old albums like Love In and Forest Flower. Good stuff. So to see him with Frisell? Stop.

    Great album. all full of fresh interpretations of timeless melodies.

    His video from NPR Tiny Desk is also outstanding.

    Full circle for me
    First saw Charles at the Newport Pop Festival in Costa Mesa when I was 17 with Keith Jarrett and Jack Dejohnette
    Huge impression for me also

    We had front row seats with Greg & Bill right in front of us at one of my all time favorite venues, the Lobero Theatre
