My Top 10 Influential​ Jazz Albums – Bill Farrish



5. John Abercrombie Featuring John Abercrombie, Marc Johnson and Peter Erskine. 1st heard this one in college. Mind-blowing, it taught me about the freedom a guitar trio can have and still keep it all together with this one. I feel lucky to have studied with John and to have actually become friends with him later in life. I honestly feel if I hadn’t heard this recording my musical life would have taken a different turn.

6. Lookout for Hope – Bill Frisell, Hank Roberts, Kermit Driscoll and Joey Baron. I love everything about this recording. Pure genius. It still blows my mind how economical the playing is on this one and how complete everything about it is. 

7. Classic Ballads – Dave Liebman, Vic Juris, Steve Gilmore. I think this recording is somewhat overlooked but the playing by everyone is absolutely stunning. Every note Vic played on this is absolute gold.
