Don't Miss Bill Frisell's Big Sur Quintet on November 6 in Carmel

Commissioned by Monterey Jazz Festival and the Big Sur Land Trust in 2012, guitarist and composer Bill Frisell debuted The Music of Glen Deven Ranch last year at the 55th Annual Monterey Jazz Festival and subsequently recorded the suite as Big Sur for the Okeh label in March 2013.

Composed in the spring of 2012 during Frisell’s residency at Glen Deven Ranch, the 860-acre property bequeathed to the Big Sur Land Trust, Big Sur features an hour of original music—19 compositions that explicitly reference the coastal-mountain environment and evoke the remote and pastoral setting with musical blends of chamber jazz, country, classical, folk, and rock.

The Santa Fe New Mexican wrote in their review of the album that “the suite is an amazing testament to how a place can coax so much from a musical genius. Frisell, confronted by the Big Sur environment, ‘filled up pages and pages,’ he said. ‘The music just kept coming.’”

Frisell will be joined by his original collaborating musicians in the 858 Quartet—both on the Festival debut and the recording—including violinist Jenny Scheinman, violist Eyvind Kang, cellist Hank Roberts, and drummer Rudy Royston.
