Bill Frisell - Healdsburg Jazz Festival

Sunday, Jun 2, 2013 7:00p
Jackson Theater Santa Rosa, CA

Ever since 1959 when he emerged in the Ornette Coleman Quartet that revolutionized jazz, Charlie Haden has used his acoustic bass to find currents that have come to define schools of jazz musicians who rely more on feeling than stylistic convention. The Healdsburg Jazz Festival is paying tribute to Haden over two days. Haden will perform with his two longest-lived bands, the Liberation Music Orchestra and Quartet West. Plus, more than 20 of his musical associates will do sets.
