One of the most original guitarists alive today, Bill Frisell comes to London Jazz Festival with an evening-long suite of original music and accompanying film and staging by Bill Morrison, based on the Mississippi River Flood of 1927 and the ensuing transformation of American society and music.
Frisell has worked with everyone from John Zorn to Elvis Costello, and yields a consistently personal and illuminating musical vision.
Frisell's wide-ranging musical palette will use elements of the vocabulary in American roots music but, as always, it will be refracted through his own inimitable lens.
'It's hard to find a more fruitful meditation on American music than in the compositions of guitarist Bill Frisell.' (The New York Times)
