HARMONY - Bill Frisell

In a short film released by Blue Note Records in 2019 to support Bill Frisell's label debut Harmony, the guitarist from Denver, Colorado, recalls his career in his incomparably accessible and likeable way as an amazing sequence of incredible encounters with colleagues and role models.

It's exquisitely about the singable and the communal. And of course, with Petra Haden, somehow Charlie Haden is also involved, who would have loved Harmony as an idea and musically. In the recently published Frisell biography "Beautiful Dreamer", biographer Philip Watson tells us that Frisell asked him what he wanted to write about. All he had achieved were the 35 years of marriage with his wife. No fights, no crises, no drugs, no gossip. Just music: With Charles Lloyd, Paul Motian, John Zorn, Hank Roberts, Jan Garbarek, Eberhard Weber, Wayne Horvitz, Charly Haden, Joe Lovano, Elvis Costello, Joey Baron, Kenny Wheeler, Lee Konitz, Ron Carter, Petra Haden, Brian Blade, Vinicius Cantuária and and and ...
