Bill Frisell
the 858 Quartet
Tue, Mar 21, 7:30 - 10:00 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
"Frisell is, without a doubt, the single most important guitarist in jazz, a genius who is going to have the kind of influence on his instrument Jimi Hendrix and Wes Mongomery had before him." -- The Seattle Times
We welcome one of the true giants of American music back to The Shedd for the third time! After visits from his Quartet (2003) and Trio (2005), Bill brings us one of his most eclectic and unique groups – the 858 Quartet. Frisell formed this quartet (with Jenny Scheinman on violin, Eyvind Kang on viola and Hank Roberts on cello) in 2004 to perform a commissioned work inspired by the paintings of German artist Gerhard Richter. This piece, along with literary responses to Richter's work by various writers and poets, is featured in a book released in conjunction with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The group has now taken on a life of its own outside the original 858 compositions, giving Frisell yet another platform for combining far-flung musical influences both familiar and obscure. The result is a great, new music that is deep, yet enjoyable, groundbreaking yet accessible.
"Frisell está, sin una duda, el solo guitarrista más importante del jazz, un genio que va a tener el tipo de influencia en su instrumento que tenía Jimi Hendrix y Wes Mongomery antes de él."-- The Seattle Times

El resultado es una música grande y nueva que es profunda, todavía agradable y accesible.
