Bill Frisell's New Quartet

The music by this experimental jazz guitarist is so phenomenally prodigious that we’d be sick of it by now, if Frisell didn’t keep reinventing himself. He’s played with John Zorn’s jazz punk band Naked City, recorded a series of meditations on American folk standards, paid homage to Malian blues, and covered pop and rock artists ranging from Madonna to Neil Young to John Hiatt. He’s also collaborated with many of the greatest living jazz and classical musicians, and even appeared on the soundtrack to Walk the Line. He also brings innovation to the normally straight-up practice of touring, shaking up both the mix of music and musicians—a quintet, an orchestra, a trio—depending on the city. Here he appears with his New Quartet, which features Greg Leisz on steel guitars, David Piltch on bass, and Kenny Wollesen on drums. 416 Cedar Ave. S., Minneapolis; 612-338-2674;
