Bill Frisell
Bill Frisell
Recognized as one of America's 21 most vital and productive performing artists, Frisell was named an inaugural Doris Duke Artist in April 2012. He is also a recipient of grants from United States Artists, Meet the Composer, and National Performance Network. Currently Frisell is the Guest Curator for the Roots of Americana series at Jazz at Lincoln Center and Resident Artistic Director at San Francisco Jazz.

Always on the lookout for opportunities to "dig around for where I'm coming from," Frisell's next project will be an homage to the instrumental popular music made "right at the birth of the Fender Telecaster guitar" that, he recalls, "got me super fired up" about his instrument of choice. Frisell will joined by fellow guitar master Greg Leisz on electric and pedal steel guitars, and his trio partners Tony Scherr on bass and Kenny Wollesen on drums. Together they will be exploring music of the Guitar in the Space Age -- Speedy West and Jimmy Bryant, Charlie Christian, B.B. King, Merle Travis, Jimi Hendrix, Link Wray, Duane Eddy, Chet Atkins, Chuck Berry, Dick Dale, The Ventures, The Astronauts,The Wrecking Crew, and more. As on all Frisell projects, the proceedings will be, he understates, "rich with possibility"
