    Bill Frisell Join us for a special homecoming of sorts for Bill Frisell at East High School! Bill graduated from EHS in 1969 and was recently inducted into their EHS Angels Hall of Fame. The music from Frisell's latest Okeh release "GUITAR IN THE SPACE AGE" is drawn directly from his time spent on this very same auditorium stage. This is sure to be an evening none will soon forget!***A portion of the proceeds for this performance go to the East High Music Scholarship Fund.***"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. Unlike other pastichists, who tend to duck passion, Mr. Frisell plays up the pleasure in the music and also takes on another often-avoided subject, tenderness." - The New York Times

    Always on the lookout for opportunities to "dig around for where I'm coming from," Bill Frisell presents 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 is 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 electric guitar in the space age inspired by artists such as Speedy West and Jimmy Bryant, Charlie Christian, Merle Travis, Link Wray, Duane Eddy, Chet Atkins, Chuck Berry, Dick Dale, The Ventures, The Astronauts, The Wrecking Crew, The Beach Boys and more. As on all Frisell projects, the proceedings will be, he understates, "rich with possibility."

Press

"The electric guitar sound of the decade - oozing, cloudy enveloping - belongs to jazz renegade Bill Frisell…Like the best artists in any field, Frisell is not a slave to his tools; he's the creator who gives them new validity...His guitar sound is unmistakable - billowing, breathlike, multi-hued, immense at times, almost palpable. Frisell's music is accessible and avant-garde, a lyrical victory of man over machine, of personality over mechanics, of message over mathematics."
