Bill Frisell FIVE

featuring Thomas Morgan, Rudy Royston, Tony Scherr & Kenny Wollesen

4544 N Lincoln Ave · Gary and Laura Maurer Concert Hall · 773.728.6000

Words on FIVE from Bill:

I've been dreaming of this for a long long time. Kenny Wollesen, Tony Scherr, and I have a long long history playing as a trio. Rudy Royston, Thomas Morgan, and I have a long long history playing as a trio. I've played trio with Rudy and Tony. I've played trio with Kenny and Thomas. I've played duets with all of them.
They are my friends, my teachers, my heroes. Every moment a joy and inspiration.

"Frisell has had a lot of practice putting high concept into a humble package. Long hailed as one of the most distinctive and original improvising guitarists of our time, he has also earned a reputation for teasing out thematic connections with his music… There's a reason that Jazz at Lincoln Center had him program a series called Roots of Americana.” - New York Times
