''White chose Frisell as accompanying guitarist, who obviously enjoyed the session'' (Spiegel Extra, 09/97) The violinist Michael White can be regarded as an elementary jazz figure. Together with Bill Frisell, one of the leading jazz-guitar innovators, White recorded the album ''motion pictures'' in the late 90s. The instrumentation reveals a proximity to country & western music, but what these two virtuosos conjure up here is a much greater range of tonal colors stemming from classical music, the avant garde, blues and naturally jazz. White & Frisell create an impressionist picture album on ''motion pictures'' with the clear emphasis on a wealth of nuance and atmospheric depth. As elegant as they are playful, the two musicians circle around each other, comment upon and decorate each other, juggle with moments of tension and silence - the tonal equivalent of shade, twilight and the individual flowing, golden rays of sunlight shining upon a vast cloudy background.
