Bill Frisell's Big Sur Quintet


Aladdin Theater (map) Southeast
Sat., Nov. 9, 8 p.m. 2013 21+


Last year, master guitarist Bill Frisell was asked by the Monterey Jazz Festival to retreat to a cabin in the woods around California's Big Sur region. The 62-year-old guitarist used the untouched landscape to inspire his most delicate, meditative work. It almost has a baroque quality to it, aided by the use of a trio of string players (including renowned violist Eyvind Kang) that bring a floating counterbalance to Frisell's earthy ramblings and the roiling waves spirited to life by drummer Rudy Royston. The five-piece bring this beautiful work to town in support of its debut recording, titled, simply enough, Big Sur. ROBERT HAM
