Bill Frisell

Saturday, January 26, 8pm

Free Conversation with the Artists – Saturday, January 26, 4pm

Bill Frisell has an uncanny knack for putting together unusually configured groups, and while When You Wish Upon a Star is relatively straightforward, it remains the kind of group that only the guitarist would choose to pay tribute to film scores from Bernard Hermann, Ennio Morricone, Nina Rota, David Raskin and Elmer Bernstein, along with songs from films including 1965’s The Sandpipers (“The Shadow of Your Smile”), the title track to the 1967 James Bond film You Only Live Twice, Disney’s 1940 animated film Pinocchio (“When You Wish Upon a Star”), and the theme song to the radio and television show, The Roy Rogers Show, of the 1940s/50s (“Happy Trails”). This performance features Frisell, on electric guitar; Petra Haden, voice; Thomas Morgan, acoustic bass; and Rudy Royston, drums.

“It’s hard to find a more fruitful meditation on American
music than in the compositions of guitarist Bill Frisell.
Mixing rock and country with jazz and blues, he’s found
what connects them: improvisation and a sense of play.”

– The New York Times
