The venerable crossover guitarist, famous for his luminous folk-jazz fusions, settles into a two-week residency at the Vanguard. Expect magic: His 2016 performances at the venue resulted in a live album, Small Town, released the following year. Expect a couple of tunes off the collection and maybe a few from the guitarist’s previous release, When You Wish Upon a Star, a series of elegant, delicately sentimental interpretations of film music. The first week (Tue 13–Mar 18), Frisell will fire up a blazing trio, with Thomas Morgan on bass and Rudy Royston on drums, which will be joined by a fourth member, Eyvind Kang on viola, for the second week (Mar 20–25).
