SynopsisBill Frisell – jazz guitarist, composer and recording artist – has “for over ten years quietly been the most brilliant and unique voice to come along in jazz guitar since Wes Montgomery” (Stereophile). A seasoned musician with an impressively diverse array of credits to his name, including collaborations with Petra Haden and Elvis Costello, original scores for two Gus Van Sant films, a 2005 Grammy award for Unspeakable, and several “Guitarist of the Year” awards. Appearing here in a trio that includes guitarist Greg Leisz and violinist Jenny Scheinman, Bill Frisell presents his characteristically inimitable and modern take on bluegrass, jazz and country blues. This production is part of Traffic Jam, a 3-week festival of music, language and performance. View the full Traffic Jam line-up.
