Bill Frisell has been described as one of America’s true living cultural treasures. A guitarist and band leader for close to 50 years, he is regarded as one of the most important and pioneering musicians in jazz.
A Grammy Award winner who has been voted ‘Guitarist of the Year’ on numerous occasions over the past 30 years, Frisell has transformed the language of his instrument, and traversed genres, from jazz to pop, folk to film music, ambient to avant-garde and country to classical.
"My trio with Tony Scherr and Kenny Wollesen is probably the most flexible, spontaneous group I play with. The program can change from night to night depending on what kind of mood we're all in... We never plan a set before hand. With Tony and Kenny I have the luxury of playing just about anything that comes into my head at any moment. This could be music from any of my albums, standard songs, folk songs, or whatever. These guys really inspire and challenge me every time we get together."
— Bill Frisell
Once described as “the favourite guitarist of many people who agree on little else in music”, Bill Frisell’s singular sound has won him a long list of admirers and collaborators that have included, to name just a few: Paul Simon, Elvis Costello, Lucinda Williams, Gus Van Sant, Van Dyke Parks, Charles Lloyd, John Zorn, Gavin Bryars, Marianne Faithful and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver.
