Bill Frisell's new album, GUITAR IN THE SPACE AGE!, is being released by Okeh Records on October 7th in the United States and October 6th internationally.
Frisell joined with long-time collaboraters Greg Leisz (pedal steel & electric guitar), Tony Scherr (acoustic
bass and electric bass guitar) and Kenny Wolleson (drums and
vibraphone) to create music that first sparked his imagination.
“I turned 63 this past spring, and 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," reflects the iconic
guitar hero. "Even to play
some of it for the first time…and maybe get it right. GUITAR IN THE
SPACE AGE! isn’t really an exercise in nostalgia, but about a
re-commitment to keep learning, to firm up the foundation."
