Featuring Petra Haden, Thomas Morgan and Rudy Royston

Legendary jazz guitarist and Grammy® award-winner Bill Frisell has a career spanning more than 35 years and 250 recordings. Bold and inventive, Frisell has tried his hand at avant-garde, noise, bop, folk, country, bluegrass, rock, blues and even classical music – all while staying true to his jazz roots.

This concert includes music from Bill’s latest Grammy Award® nominated album, When You Wish Upon a Star – featuring unique interpretations of classic American cinema music from Hitchcock’s Psycho through to Ennio Morricone's score to Once Upon A Time In The West, via Nino Rota's music for The Godfather – alongside the jazz classics for which he is famed.

Frisell is joined on stage by vocalist Petra Haden, bass player Thomas Morgan, and drummer Rudy Royston.

“Bill Frisell is the most innovative and influential jazz guitarist of the past 25 years.” The Wall Street Journal
“Frisell is a revered figure among musicians like Miles Davis and few others...” The New York Times
