    Outstanding! Every new day is a new, fresh musical page for him, and everything he has done makes me believe that this is truly genuinely so. How many of us live up to this aspiration?

    Thanks, Navdeep. Don't forget to come back tomorrow, when a 2001 interview I did about his ECM years, never before published, is published....
    Best!

    Excellent piece on one of the most intriguing composers out there today. The guy constantly inspires me to try new things with my playing, to varying degrees of success. Thanks for Frisell Week. So far it's been great.

    Excellent interview, John. I'll have to remember to read the 2001 interview when I have a moment. Thanks for letting Bill's words carry the interview!

    Thanks Robert. As far as I'm concerned, the artist's voice should always carry an interview...I'm just the guy asking some questions, transcribing the interview, and whipping it into shape!

    Do check out the 2001 interview; I was surprised, when I went back to it, to find just how much good stuff he gave me about his early years recording for ECM....

    Thanks again for taking the time to write.
    Best!

    You're right, John. The 2001 interview has some great stuff in it. Bill was very open with you. Nice job!

    Thanks again for writing, Robert...and for taking the time to read both interviews. Bill's a very generous guy, and that clearly is something that hasn't changed, which is great to see.
