uitarist Bill Frisell, to dredge up an all-too-often used description, is a “musician’s musician.” His immense talent and approach to music has not only found him exploring many styles of music and the various nooks and crannies of genres, but also enabled him to make a living while playing with a wide variety of ensembles.
Frisell has recorded and played with artists ranging from Dave Holland, John Zorn and Elvin Jones to Jerry Douglas, Danny Barnes, Abigail Washburn and Elvis Costello. He has played Jazz, Classical, Rock and Roots music, written and performed film scores and often probed the boundaries of exploratory sounds. Read more about the artist here.
Bill Frisell performs Thursday at the Taft Theatre’s Ballroom. Tickets/more info: tafttheatre.org.
