Bill Frisell "Guitar in the Space Age!"

The New Album From Grammy®-Winning Jazz Guitarist

An homage to the American electric guitarists of the 50s & 60s

For his new album, "Guitar in the Space Age!," guitarist and composer Bill Frisell mines the catalog of guitar-based music from the 1950s and 1960s that first inspired him to pick up the instrument. Joining Frisell for this album of musical memories are the members of his working trio, bassist Tony Scherr and drummer Kenny Wollesen, along with frequent collaborator Greg Leisz, a master of the lap and pedal steel guitars. This superb quartet explores the music of Pete Seeger, The Byrds, Junior Wells, Dick Dale, The Ventures, The Astronauts, Chet Atkins, Merle Travis and others with Frisell's own compositions sprinkled in. "Guitar in the Space Age!" offers a rare look into Bill Frisell's formative influences, from a time when the electric guitar was in its infancy and creating a startlingly new sound, pushing popular music into the future.

Bill Frisell is one of the leading and most innovative guitarists of our time. Although his work is steeped in jazz, his music includes characteristics of rock, country and bluegrass, among various other styles. Such liberality explains his willingness to expand his tonal palette beyond that of a typical jazz guitarist and he has carved out a niche by virtue of his sound. A Grammy® winner for Best Contemporary Jazz Album in 2005, Bill is one of the most singular musicians of his generation and has released over 30 albums since his debut recording in 1983.
