Grammy Award®-winner and ten-time Downbeat Guitarist of the Year, Frisell has garnered countless accolades from critics, audiences and peers worldwide. A renowned composer and bandleader, he is also sought after by some of music’s greatest artists and across many genres. Yet despite his iconic status, Frisell notoriously shies from the limelight.
It is significant then that Franz has so meticulously explored the nuances of Frisell’s thought processes, approach and character. When Frisell saw the film for the first time his response was, “It’s like the inside of my brain!”
A character portrait of anti-archetype guitar hero, Bill Frisell, this nuanced film traces the ideas and processes that shaped Frisell’s music, and provides rare insight into the mind and personality of one of the significant musicians of recent decades.
Full of live music, revealing stories, and intimate access to the normally reclusive Frisell, various collaborations are followed from development to fruition, including the last ever performance of the Paul Motian Trio with Frisell and Joe Lovano.
Also featuring Bonnie Raitt, Hal Willner, Paul Simon, Nels Cline, Joey Baron, Jim Hall, Jason Moran, Mike Gibbs, John Zorn, Jack DeJohnette, Ron Carter and John Abercrombie.
“One of the most compelling, entertaining and informative films made about a living
music legend...” John Kelman
