STG Presents Bill Frisell: "When You Wish Upon a Star" featuring Petra Haden, Thomas Morgan & Matt Chamberlain at The Moore Theatre on November 5, 2016. Presented as part of the 2016 Earshot Jazz Festival.

BILL FRISELL'S career as a guitarist and composer has spanned more than 35 years and 250 recordings, including 40 of his own. Described as being "at the very epicenter of modern American Music" (BBC), Frisell's recording catalog has been cited by Downbeat as "the best recorded output of the decade," including his recent album, All We Are Saying, a new collection of John Lennon interpretations. Currently Frisell is the Guest Curator for the Roots of Americana series at Jazz at Lincoln Center and Resident Artistic Director at San Francisco Jazz.

WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR, Frisell's latest recording draws upon the classic film and television music we have heard on screen and how it shapes and informs our emotional relationships to what we see. Frisell, whose own music has been featured in major motion pictures like Finding Forrester and The Million Dollar Hotel performs with singer Petra Haden, bassist Thomas Morgan, and drummer Matt Chamberlin in re-imagining time-honored gems such as "When You Wish Upon a Star," "To Kill a Mockingbird," "The Shadow of Your Smile," "Moon River," "You Only Live Twice," Frisell's own theme for Gary Larson's television special, Tales from the Far Side and others. Produced by Lee Townsend; engineered by Tucker Martine and Adam Muñoz and mastered with Greg Calbi.
