Bill Frisell
Bill Frisell’s prolific career as guitarist, composer, and arranger demonstrates extraordinary range and depth, with work rooted in jazz but incorporating elements of blues and other popular American music traditions. Immediately recognizable for his unique sound, he has transformed the modern guitar landscape, steadily expanding his sonic purview and claiming an ever-greater range of musical traditions, media, and repertoire. From Charles Ives and Aaron Copland to Buster Keaton and Bob Dylan, from Sonny Rollins and American Songbook ballads to country blues and Nashville twang, Frisell distills the essence of the American experience. He has collaborated with a wide range of musicians, filmmakers, painters, and has appeared on over 250 recordings, including 40 albums of his own. He is a Grammy winner, USA Fellow and Doris Duke Artist, and received a Letter of Distinction from the American Music Center.

Tony has recorded most of these latter artists at his Brooklyn home studio, helping to foster and document a tight-knit, intimate scene of players who are as skilled and daring as they are broadminded and modest.

Sam Amidon
Sam Amidon
The Following Mountain, Sam Amidon’s sixth album overall and his third for Nonesuch Records, is his first album of original songs. A deeply personal synthesis of folk-based song form and experimental improvisation, it “feels like a liberation” (Uncut) and “provides constant, jolting surprises” (The Guardian). But in his decade-long career as a recording and touring musician, the singer and multi-instrumentalist (banjo, guitar, fiddle) has always managed to create work that’s utterly original, even when, as on previous discs, he was digging through the sounds and stories of traditional American music. The Following Mountain features appearances by musicians such as Shahzad Ismaily, master percussionists Milford Graves and Juma Sultan, and psychedelic jazz musician Sam Gendel.
