One does not simply define Bill Frisell as a “jazz guitarist.”
He seamlessly intertwines the genre with elements of rock, americana, folk and blues. Although he started out playing the clarinet as a child, it was the octave solo phrasings of Wes Montgomery that compelled Bill to seek guitar lessons while he was still a teenager.
With just over thirty years of recordings and collaborations with countless amounts of esteemed musicians, expect Bill to win his second Grammy in 2017.
