Bill Frisell Guitar in the Space Age! 180g Import Vinyl LP

2016 Grammy Nominee! 180g Audiophile Vinyl with insert.

On this brand new album, guitarist and composer Bill Frisell mines the catalog of the guitar-based music from the 1950s and 1960s that first inspired him to pick up the instrument. This performance promises a rare look into Bill Frisell's formative influences, from a time when the electric guitar was in its infancy and creating a startlingly new sound, pushing popular music into the future.

Joining Frisell for this album of musical memories are the members of his working trio, bassist Tony Scherr and drummer Kenny Wollesen, along with frequent collaborator Greg Liesz, a master of lap and pedal steel guitars.

This superb quartet explores the music of Pete Seeger, The Byrds, Junior Wells, rock pioneers Duane Eddy, Link Wray and The Kinks, surf music legends The Beach Boys, Dick Dale, The Ventures and The Astronauts, and country music stars Chet Atkins, Speedy West, Jimmy Bryant and Merle Travis, with Frisell's own compositions sprinkled in.

"After playing for more than 50 years, it just feels right to once again play some of the music which shaped my consciousness during my formative years, even to play some of it for the first time...and maybe get it right," said Bill Frisell.
