Amoeba Music is a proud sponsor of SFJAZZ's solo concert with Bill Frisell at San Francisco's beautiful Grace Cathedral on Friday, September 18th.
Long a master of creating space, Bill Frisell has built a career by manipulating the sound of his guitar to create unexpected sonic landscapes. For his return to Grace Cathedral, the soaring sanctuary and its natural seven-second reverberation will provide an unforgettable acoustic setting that will take Frisell’s musical explorations into new territory.
Free from the confines of a group, Frisell’s singular artistry as an improviser, composer, and radical musical re-interpreter becomes crystal clear. For this performance, Frisell’s choice of material may roam freely from his own compositions and jazz chestnuts by Thelonious Monk to wildly unconventional takes on Bob Dylan, Madonna, and the Americana of Stephen Foster, often utilizing layers of loops, delays, and other electronic effects in concert with Grace Cathedral’s sonorous environment to expand the sonic possibilities even further.
This night is required attendance for all guitar players, and all lovers of jazz at its most unconventional. Get your tickets HERE!
