Product Description

 
OKeh will release guitarist-composer Bill Frisell’s new album, Big Sur. The project marks his label debut as well as the first album featuring the Big Sur Quintet (which combines his 858 Quartet and Beautiful Dreamers trio). 
Born of a Monterey Jazz Festival commission in 2012, Bill Frisell’s Big Sur features an hour of original music, 19 compositions that explicitly reference the coastal-mountain environment. Titles such as “A Good Spot,” “Going to California,” “A Beautiful View,” “Big Sur,” and “On the Lookout evoke the remote and pastoral setting with musical blends of chamber jazz, country, classical, folk, and rock. Joined by violinist Jenny Scheinman, violist Eyvind Kang, cellist Hank Roberts, and drummer Rudy Royston, the group premiered the music at the festival in September 2012. Six months later, the quintet recorded Big Sur at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California, with longtime Frisell collaborators Lee Townsend and Adam Muñoz producing and engineering, respectively. 
 
About Bill Frisell: 
 
Since launching his recording career as leader in 1983 on the ECM label, guitarist Bill Frisell has spent much of the past 30 years in studios and on tour. His stunning résumé includes solo work, such as the recent Silent Comedy (Tzadik); duos with Greg Leisz, Vinicius Cantuária, Jim Hall, and Petra Haden; various trios (Ron Carter and Paul Motian; Dave Holland and Elvin Jones; Tony Scherr and Kenny Wollesen; and Beautiful Dreamers with Eyvind Kang and Rudy Royston) and quartets; and such genre-blurring projects as the Intercontinentals, The Willies, Buddy Miller’s Majestic Silver Strings, Floratone (with drummer Matt Chamberlain and producers Townsend and Tucker Martine), The Sweetest Punch: The New Songs of Elvis Costello & Burt Bacharach, All We Are Saying (a tribute to the music of John Lennon), and Richter 858 (with Kang, Scheinman, and Roberts). A recipient of the inaugural Doris Duke Artist Award in 2012, his distinctive guitar tones, colors, and harmonic sensibilities make Frisell one of the most sought- after collaborators in contemporary music. Additionally, Frisell lends his artistic vision to two major arts intuitions in 2013: as a Resident Artistic Director for SFJAZZ and curator of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s new “Roots of Americana” series (the latter during the 2013-2014 season).
