Composer/arranger Mike Gibbs and guitarist Bill Frisell have been listening to one another since they met at Berklee in the mid-1970s. Gibbs was composer- in-residence and the younger Frisell was a freshman. Frisell would go on to become one of the leading guitar voices of his generation, while Gibbs has built a reputation as an orchestra arranger and conductor for everyone from Joni Mitchell to Whitney Houston. Here,the two old friends reunite in front of Hamburg’s well-drilled NDR Big Band (with Jeff Ballard guesting on drums) for an eclectic set of tunes (Frisell, Monk, Gil Evans, Lennon.

Bill Frisell), including "Throughout (feat. Bill Frisell)", "Las Vegas Tango (feat. Bill Frisell)", "Subconcious Lee (feat. Bill Frisell)" and many more.

Gibbs’ intermittent relationship with Germany’s NDR Bigband, one the world's longest-running jazz ensembles, dates back to the early 1970s and has provided a particularly valuable vehicle for his vivid musical imagination. I feel I know the individual players so well, that I write for them personally, or use how I know them in making orchestrational choices, Gibbs says of the NDR Bigband. That’s a luxury these day, when other projects are written more for the standard instrumentation without knowledge of the personal attributes (stunning as though they might be, and often are)

The music of Michael Gibbs remains woefully under-recorded, even as the composer hits his mid-70s, so this release from the ever wonderful Cuneiform Records is a bit of an event. After a spell as a jobbing trombonist on the British jazz scene in the late 1960s, Gibbs devoted himself to writing and arranging music for that unfashionable and uneconomic beast, the big band. These recordings come from three sessions with the German NDR Big Band made from 1995 to 2003. The earliest session features vibraphonist Gary Burton as guest soloist (Gibbs' first arranging job was for Burton in the early 60s, and they've collaborated often since), while all sessions feature the massively underrated saxophonist Christof Lauer, whose work is a joy throughout.

Recorded at the Überjazz Festival with the NDR Bigband on Oct 26, 2013, Play a Bill Frisell Set List captures Frisell interacting with one of the world’s great jazz orchestras, exploring sleek, spacious, vividly expressive arrangements of compositions drawn from throughout his career. Michael Gibbs didn’t plan the concert as a recording session, but after many years of trying to bring Frisell and the NDR together he felt the results were too good to keep under wraps. “Jeff Ballard playing drums for this concert was a dream, and the band really enjoyed playing it, so the music was magical,” Michael Gibbs says. “I couldn’t resist the opportunity to release it.” It’s difficult to overstate Gibbs’ impact on the trajectory of Frisell’s music and career. As a Denver teenager, Frisell convinced his father to take him to a touring Newport Jazz Festival show at Red Rocks in the summer of 1968 and the experience radically opened his ears. “It was an amazing program, with Gary Burton with Bob Moses, Coryell, and Steve Swallow, and they blew my brains out,” Frisell recalls. “I’d never heard anything like it. So I started getting those records, and there’s some guy named Mike Gibbs who wrote half the songs on these records. He had so much to do with that sound, making a world for that group to inhabit.” Frisell started following Gibbs’ music, and was thrilled to discover that he was composer-in-residence at Berklee when he enrolled in 1975. He took all of the classes that Gibbs offered and was tremendously encouraged when Gibbs complimented his playing after catching Frisell’s group at a gig. By 1978 Frisell had relocated to Belgium to focus on his music, which meant he was well placed to step in when Gibbs needed a guitarist for a tour of the UK. The group included the German bassist Eberhard Weber, with whom Frisell would play a duo at every concert. The connection he forged with the bassist on this tour led to Frisell’s participation on Weber’s 1979 album Fluid Rustle, the first of the dozens of recordings that Frisell would do on ECM as a sideman and leader, and where his career truly started! Play a Bill Frisell Set List is Bill Frisell’s first-ever appearance as the featured soloist on a big band session, and with Michael Gibbs’ melodically verdant, harmonically suggestive arrangements, he’s not likely to find a better set list than Set List. ~ Michael Gibbs
