Singapore International Festival of Arts 2019 Bill Frisell Trio featuring Rudy Royston & Thomas Morgan (USA)
29 May 2019, 8:00 PM - 11:59 PM
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 of Bill Frisell Trio.
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, an up-and-coming drummer in the jazz world, The Bill Frisell Trio will feature a lively improvisatory set and some of Frisell’s most iconic compositions.
Set to delight audiences in their Singapore premiere at SIFA 2019, enjoy a wonderful evening with these world-class musicians as they bring to the stage their sheer love and passion for music.
