With his new album Guitar in the Space Age!, Frisell goes back to the music that first sparked his imagination. "There's something about being the age I'm at now," he says. "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, 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."
This series of eclectic shows across the U.S. will be in support of Guitar in the Space Age! and the performances will feature guitarist Greg Leisz, bassist Tony Scherr, and drummer Kenny Wollenson.
