Bill Frisell Trio

featuring Rudy Royston & Thomas Morgan (USA)

From mellow jazz tones to gorgeous lyrical harmonies, Grammy-award winning composer and celebrated guitarist Bill Frisell triumphantly takes the stage in this Singapore premiere.

For over 40 years, the extraordinarily original and prolific Bill Frisell has been a seminal figure in modern American music. From jazz, bluegrass, country, rock and roll, to folk, interspaced with bursts of the avant-garde, Frisell’s sound traverses the sweep of contemporary American musical history, yet remains instantly recognisable and wonderfully intimate.

Yet, what makes Frisell a joy to watch is his free and improvisatory style, one which continues to astonish audiences around the world. His inimitable guitar skills are at the centre of it all – producing an infinite spectrum of reverberating chords from a single electric guitar.

Joined by Thomas Morgan, one of the most in-demand bassists on the international scene, and Rudy Royston, a consummate drummer in the jazz world, Bill Frisell Trio will feature a lively improvisatory set and some of Frisell’s most iconic compositions.

Enjoy a wonderful evening with these world-class musicians as they bring to the stage their sheer love and passion for music.
