Guitarist Bill Frisell and drummer Jack DeJohnette were all over the festival this year, in various musical configurations. It is only fitting, then, that one of the last performances of the evening should be a duet by the pair at Dizzy’s Den. A guitar-drums duo may sound a little spare in principle, but in practice both these musicians have distinct technical styles that seem to multiply the number of musicians on stage: Frisell by means of various electronic effects, DeJohnette by dint of his polyrhythmic drumming (not to mention his doubling on piano).
