Win a double pass to see Bill Frisell's When You Wish Upon a Star.
Hailed as one of the most innovative and influential guitarists of the past quarter of a century, Bill Frisel will hit the stage at Concert Hall, Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) on Friday, June 9.
Guitarist and composer Bill Frisell is a revered musician and Grammy award-winner, whose career spans more than 35 years and 250 recordings. Recognised as one of America’s most vital and productive performing artists, this bold and inventive musician is true to jazz, but that hasn’t prevented him from trying his hand at avant-garde, bop, folk, country, bluegrass, rock, blues, American popular music and even classical music.
Frisell is a 13-time Best Guitarist winner in America’s Down Beat Magazine Critics Poll (including 2016), and five-time Guitarist of the Year at the Jazz Journalists’ Association Jazz Awards.
The When You Wish Upon a Star concert includes music from Bill’s latest album release of the same title, nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album in 2016. It features unique interpretations of classic American cinema music from Hitchcock’s Psycho through to Ennio Morricone’s score to Once Upon A Time In The West, via Nino Rota’s music for The Godfather as well as other jazz classics for which Frisell is well known.
Frisell is joined on stage by vocalist Petra Haden (The Decemberists, Beck, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Victoria Williams, Yuka Honda, The Gutter Twins, The Haden Triplets), bass player Thomas Morgan (Paul Motian, Dave Binney Quartet, Steve Coleman and Five Elements, Tomasz Stanko New York Quartet) and drummer Rudy Royston (Branford Marsalis, Dave Douglas, The Mingus Big Band).
