Bill Frisell has been one of the world’s leading jazz guitarists since the late eighties. A pioneer who incorporates Americana, rock, blues and even country influences into his playing. The result is a unique, individual style. Frisell, who grew up in Denver, originally wanted to be a classical musician but after switching from clarinet to guitar he lost his heart to the freedom of swing music. The 63-year-old Grammy winner has performed several times at the North Sea Jazz Festival. This time he is bringing his latest album Guitar In The Space Age! (2014) to life in Ahoy. Together with Greg Leisz (pedal steel), Tony Scherr (bass) and Kenny Wollesen (drums), Frisell pays tribute to the songs released on the legendary Okeh Records label in the sixties.
