About Bill Frisell: HARMONY
HARMONY is Frisell's debut album with Blue Note Records, released in 2019 and produced by Lee Townsend. The New York Times describes the album as follows: "The eminent guitarist improvises in smoky ringlets of melody, drawing the influence of classic jazz guitar into a palette based on early American folk music. He has been a noted bandleader since the 1980's, but has never released an album for Blue Note Records, jazz' most illustrious label. That will change with HARMONY, which finds Frisell playing smoldering original compositions along with a few covers alongside vocalist Petra Haden, cellist Hank Roberts and guitarist and bassist Luke Bergman."
"We are ecstatic to have Bill Frisell and his HARMONY project to SECCA for the 23rd concert in the Crossroads concert series," said Andy Tennille, curator of the Crossroads series and a member of the SECCA Foundation board. "Bill's resume speaks for itself and fits right into the lineage of world-class artists that SECCA has brought to Winston-Salem since the birth of the Crossroads series 10 years ago."
