Bill Frisell
Long a master of creating space, Bill Frisell has built a career by manipulating the sound of his guitar to create unexpected sonic landscapes. According to The New Yorker: “Bill Frisell plays the guitar like Miles Davis played the trumpet: in the hands of such radical thinkers, their instruments simply become different animals." Free from the confines of a group, Frisell’s singular artistry as an improviser, composer and radical musical re-interpreter becomes crystal clear. For this performance, Frisell’s choice of material may roam freely from his own original compositions, to his inimitable take on all forms of American vernacular music. This night should be a required listening for all guitar players and lovers of music.

"It’s hard to find a more fruitful meditation on American music than in the compositions of guitarist Bill Frisell. Mixing rock and country with jazz and blues, he’s found what connects them: improvisation and a sense of play. Unlike other putschists, who tend to duck passion, Mr. Frisell plays up the pleasure in music and also takes on another often-avoided subject, tenderness." — The New York Times

"Frisell is without a doubt, the single most important guitarist in jazz, a genius who is going to have the kind of influence on his instrument Jimi Hendrix and Wes Montgomery had before him " — Seattle Times
