“By common critical consent Frisell is the most influential guitarist in jazz of the past 30 years” The Times
Opening this new international series from Stoney Lane Live, one of the greatest living jazz guitarists comes to
Birmingham with his trio (Thomas Morgan – bass, Rudy Royston – drums) for an intimate and unforgettable
performance with the most nimble, conversational and spontaneous of on-stage collaborations.
They’ll delve into the wonderful catalogue of Frisell’s works old and new, alongside classic standards, jazz, popular and folk songs as deeply lyrical as they are adventurous. A rare opportunity to see this extraordinary musician live in the city, in the beautiful acoustic surrounds of The Bradshaw Hall.
“ … Afropop, country-western, Brill Building pop, atmospheric electronica—the performances represent
jazz playing at its most sublime. And music seldom gets more “together” than that.” Downbeat ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“As the trio delved into the musical tapestry, their synchronized breaths transformed the space.” AllAboutJazz
