"After decades of tredding such a brave and singular path, maybe Frisell deserves his own genre. How about ‘friz’?"
—Financial Times (London)
Bill Frisell launches this year’s festival in FIAF’s newly renovated Florence Gould Hall with a rare concert that unites two of his seminal groups, the 858 Quartet, featuring Eyvind Kang, Hank Roberts, and Jenny Scheinman, and Beautiful Dreamers, a trio featuring Eyvind Kang and Rudy Royston.
