Bill Frisell Trio feat. Tony Scherr and Kenny Wolleson @ the 930 – 6/13

Saturday, June 13, 2009 @ 8 p.m. / Doors open @ 7 p.m. / All ages / $15 advance, $18 day of show / Tickets on sale now at the930.org

The 930 is very excited to welcome back one of America’s most treasured guitarists, Bill Frisell; this time with his trio featuring Tony Scherr and Kenny Wolleson.

“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

“Bill Frisell is the Clark Kent of the electric guitar. Soft-spoken and self-effacing in conversation, he apparently breathes in lungfuls of raw fire when he straps on his (guitar)…His music is not what is typically called jazz, though it turns on improvisation; it’s not rock’n roll; and it sure ain’t that tired dinosaur called fusion. In one of the biggest leaps of imagination since the Yardbirds and Jimi Hendrix, Frisell coaxes and slams his hovering split-toned ax into shapes of things to come…But besides being a guitar genius, he’s turned into a terrific songwriter. Like Monk, Frisell’s harmonic and melodic ideas form a succinct, seamless mesh with outer sonic and rhythmic ideas about his ax.” – Spin

  1. The 930’s website is currently down and experiencing major issues. As of now, the site was the only outlet for buying tickets to this show.

    Rest assured there are still tickets left and the site will be back up to purchase them as soon as possible. Keep checking back. Thanks
