“a movie for your ears… a landscape of sound” – Pop Matters


Bill Frisell’s career as a guitarist and composer has spanned more than forty years and many celebrated recordings, whose catalog has been cited by Downbeat as “the best-recorded output of the decade.”

Frisell’s trio featuring bassist Thomas Morgan and Rudy Royston is musically nimble enough to go anywhere with him. They have a command of the sizable oeuvre of Frisell compositions. They can also handle the pop, folk and standard songs that Bill enjoys interpreting on an ongoing basis. The trio’s method is interactive, conversational and ready to groove at any moment, yielding fresh and surprising performances.

Their album, 2020’s Valentine, has been hailed as “a masterpiece” by Downbeat. “They consistently and strikingly play as one, voices intertwined, completing phrases as if sharing a single thought… Even overdubs are so perfect that everything feels utterly organic… the performances represent jazz playing at its most sublime.”

“Frisell has had a lot of practice putting high concept into a humble package. Long hailed as one of the most distinctive and original improvising guitarists of our time, he has also earned a reputation for teasing out thematic connections with his music… There’s a reason that Jazz at Lincoln Center had him program a series called Roots of Americana.”  – New York Times

Recognized as one of America’s most vital and productive performing artists, Frisell was named an inaugural Doris Duke Artist in 2012. He is also a recipient of grants from United States Artists and Meet the Composer, among others. In 2016, he was a beneficiary of the first FreshGrass Composition Commission to preserve and support innovative grassroots music. Upon San Francisco Jazz opening its doors in 2013, he served as one of their Resident Artistic Directors.
