'When I Fall in Love' is missing the end, but it sounds like I have lost only a few bars.

Hi Bill,

It's good to hear from you. i hope you won't be dissappointed. I have now invested in a digital recorder, which eliminates the "running out of tape" problem.


There is an interesting connection between this concert and the more recent post of Sunn O))) at Koko. Eyvind Kang, heard here on violin with Frisell, is also credited with with viola and ensemble arrangements for Sunn O)))'s "Monoliths & Dimensions" CD.

I have a recording of Bill Frisell concert with the BBC Symphony Orchestra on 19 November 2009 at the Barbican. I'll try and move that one up the queue, but I won't promise when.

Cheers,
Phil
