PDX Jazz presents Bill Frisell and his Big Sur Quintet. November 9, 8pm at the Aladdin Theater featuring violinist Jenny Scheinman, violist Eyvind Kang, cellist Hank Roberts and drummer Rudy Royston (all of whom are featured on the Big Sur Project album).
Born of a Monterey Jazz Festival commission in 2012, Big Sur features an hour and a half of original music that explicitly references the coastal-mountain environment of Big Sur, California. The music of the Big Sur project transcends musical labels spanning a variety of genres: jazz, classical, California surf music and Americana. The compositional artistry of Frisell shines through, and one can’t listen to this programmatic piece without being transported to the dramatic coastal ranges of California.
“…[Big Sur’s] 19 tracks, most relatively brief, interweave some half-dozen themes, sometimes in stately fashion, others joyously…after a while, these themes overlap and blur, often to mesmerizing effect.” – The Wall Street Journal
