Bill Frisell "When You Wish Upon A Star" says
Grammy® Award winner Bill Frisell has built a reputation as one of the most eclectic and creative guitarists in jazz since the late 1980s. He has won numerous Jazz Journalists Association Awards and multiple Downbeat Critics and Readers Polls. But perhaps Frisell is most famous for the unique array of effects and tones he can summon out of his guitar, placing him in a singularly identifiable musical stratosphere of his own, and many of these such sounds are on ample display in his newest project, When You Wish Upon A Star.
For his When You Wish Upon a Star album, released in early 2016 on Sony Masterworks, Frisell draws upon classic film and television music we have heard on screen and explores how it shapes our emotional relationships to what we see. Frisell, whose own music has been featured in major motion pictures like Finding Forrester and The Million Dollar Hotel, performs with singer Petra Haden, violist Eyvind Kang, bassist Thomas Morgan, and drummer Matt Chamberlain in re-imagining time-tested music themes from To Kill a Mockingbird, Psycho, Once Upon a Time in the West, The Godfather and more in what should be a magical evening of live music.
“Frisell is a revered figure among musicians – like Miles Davis and few others, his signature is built from pure sound and inflection; an anti-technique that is instantly identifiable.” – The Philadelphia Inquirer
