ABOUT THE ARTISTS

The Bill Frisell Trio, with bassist Thomas Morgan and drummer Rudy Royston, joins a rich legacy of three-member groups: the trios of Nat Cole, Hank Jones, Erroll Garner, Bill Evans and many others. It’s a heritage all but defined by the tensions between tradition and individuality, continuity and change, that have always informed jazz and spark every performance by the Frisell Trio.

“All three of these musicians have a deep sense of structure along with their exploratory approach to making music, so they can elaborate but never move too far away from what they need to do to serve the song. This trio is a sterling example of balancing that architectural sensibility with the spirit of spontaneity at the same time,” says Lee Townsend, producer of the Trio’s new recording Valentine.

 

Bill Frisell’s upcoming biography, Bill Frisell, Beautiful Dreamer: The Guitarist Who Changed The Sound of American Music, will be available for purchase at the show and Frisell will be signing copies after the performance.
