Cuneiform, 2015, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: BigBand
O’s Notes: The NDR Big Band continues to be among the world’s best large jazz ensembles. This time they support arranger/composer/conductor Michael Gibbs as they Play A Bill Frisell Set List. “Las Vegas Tango”, “Subconscious Lee” and “Benny Bugle” are among the best tunes. The precision, layering and integration with the headliner are spot on. Gibbs has transformed the powerful NDR Big Band into a high-octane fusion band courtesy of guitarist Bill Frisell!
