Bill Frisell is one of the leading and most innovative guitarists of our time. Big Sur contains all new Frisell compositions commissioned by the Monterey Jazz Festival Guitarist and is inspired by the grandeur of Glen Deven Ranch in Big Sur, California. Recorded with a band of Jenny Scheinman (violin), Carrie Rodriguez (fiddle and tenor guitar), Eyvind Kang (viola), Hank Roberts (cello) and Rudy Royston (drums) and produced by Lee Townsend.
“Bill Frisell plays the guitar like Miles Davis played the trumpet: in the hands of such radical thinkers, their instruments simply become different animals. And, like Davis, Frisell loves to have a lot of legroom when he improvises--the space that terrifies others quickens his blood.” The New Yorker
