Bill Frisell is a unique jazz guitar player due to his original technique and sound. His guitar sound is unlike any other guitarist : he makes his guitar sound like something between
a pedal steel guitar and a horn player thanks to the use of a volume pedal and guitar effects like delay and reverb.
Bill Frisell takes elements from a lot of different genres (rock, country, bebop, ...) and manages to blend these elements in a way of playing that's never been heard before. He's not afraid to play a folk chord in a jazz situation and doesn't rely on playing fast to make things interesting.
Be sure to check him out if you didn't already!
