Bill Frisell-The Days of Wine and Roses


This is a video of Bill Frisell playing the jazz standard “The Days of Wine and Roses” Frisell is one of the most accomplished guitarists on the jazz scene today.  He has distinguished himself by playing in a lush style that is often hard to achieve on the guitar as notes have a tendency to decay quickly.  Part of what allows him to play this way is his the equipment that he uses.  By playing a solid body guitar through a series of chorus, reverb, and filter effects, Frisell is able to play notes that sustain much longer than a guitarist with a hollow body instrument straight into an amplifier. In many of his original songs, he also uses looper pedals or very fast delay pedals to provide a full harmonic accompaniment behind the melody he is playing.
