The Shedd Presents: The Bill Frissell Trio

The Shedd Institute welcomes back multi-award winning guitarist Bill Frisell with Thomas Morgan (bass) and Rudy Royston (drums) on tour in support of their recent release Valentine. The Bill Frisell Trio with bassist Thomas Morgan and drummer Rudy Royston joins a rich legacy of three-member groups: the trios of Nat Cole, Hank Jones, Erroll Garner, Bill Evans and many others. It’s a heritage all but defined by the tensions between tradition and individuality, continuity and change, that have always informed jazz and spark every performance by the Frisell Trio.
