Grammy winning guitarist Bill Frisell is a highly revered figure in the jazz and blues scene.
There aren’t many artists that can attest to having a ‘signature’ sound, but like Miles Davis and a few others, he has built one from pure sound and inflection; an anti-technique that is instantly identifiable.
Mixing rock, country, jazz and blues all with a playfully improvisational style, what separates Frisell from his contemporaries is his tenderness with the guitar, something that is wholly unique to his music and live performances.
The guitarist has had a pretty amazing year, having recorded an album with both of his longtime collaborators Lucinda Williams and Charles Lloyd on the excellent Vanished Gardens, in addition to his role on the great Change in the Air LP by trumpet player Cuong Vu, and even his first purely solo album since 2000 with Music IS.
Opening the show will be a solo performance from Edition Records guitarist Stuart McCallum.
