Legendary guitarist Bill Frisell's first release on OKeh Records is Big Sur, and features all-new music commissioned by the Monterey Jazz Festival. While staying at the Glen Deven Ranch, Frisell was captivated by the beauty and grandeur of the California coastline which inspired him to write this music. He is joined on the recording by Jenny Scheinman (violin), Eyvind Kang (viola), Hank Roberts (cello) and Rudy Royston (drums).

Bill Frisell is one of the leading and most innovative guitarists of our time. His work covers a wide range of color and he has carved out a niche by virtue of his sound.  A Grammy® winner for Best Contemporary Jazz Album in 2005, Bill is one of the most singular musicians of his generation and has released over 30 albums since his debut recording in 1983.
