Music

Bill Frisell Trio

with guests Trichotomy

Presented by JCP

Experience the quicksilver sound of “guitar genius” (SPIN Magazine) and multi Grammy Award©-winner Bill Frisell in this rare intimate concert.

A shining light of Americana, New York-based Frisell is “the most innovative and influential jazz guitarist of the past 25 years” (The Wall Street Journal) and has collaborated with some of the greatest pop artists of our time including Elvis Costello, Paul Simon, Sting, Brian Eno, Lou Reed and Marianne Faithfull, along with jazz luminaries John Scoffield, Chick Corea, Ron Carter, Pat Metheny and the late Charlie Haden.

With Frisell joined by bass player Thomas Morgan (Paul Motian, Dave Binney Quartet) and drummer Rudy Royston (Branford Marsalis, The Mingus Big Band), you’ll revel in a spell – binding sonic journey that features new music from his latest releases, Small Town and Music IS, alongside reimagined classics from his extensive catalogue.

Don’t miss this iconic voice in music – part skewered jazz, part roadside folk blues and part gritty rock, delivering big-sky grooves with one of jazz’s most deeply interactive trios.

Reviews

★★★★★…mesmerising…elegant and electric…filled with nearly unimaginable musical delights.

JazzTimes Live at Montreal Jazz Festival

★★★★★ Across four decades of original composition, technical vision and jazz-improv audacity, the quiet Seattle maestro has become the Jimi Hendrix of contemporary music’s quirkier forms.

The Gardian (UK)

★★★★★ It was a deep and astonishing set of music – subtle, pervasive, full of heart ... it was spellbinding.
