Bill Frisell

Shy guy guitar hero Bill Frisell is back in town, this time with his take on baby boomer music called, "Guitar in the Space Age." You can expect idiosyncratic, compelling covers of classics from the rock'n'roll, surf, blues, country and folk fields, 1950s and 1960s favorites by The Beach Boys, Link Wray, Pete Seeger, Junior Wells, Chet Atkins, Chuck Berry, Merle Travis and Duane Eddy, plus The Chantays' classic, "Pipeline." It's great material, though mostly far removed from the jazz and improvised music canon. But heck, by now it's clear that Mr. Frisell could offer a night of Backstreet Boys interpretations and make it interesting, especially with such talented and trusted veteran bandstand mates as Kenny Wolleson (drums), Greg Leisz (guitar and pedal steel), and Tony Scherr (bass).
