UW Music: Earshot Jazz Festival with Bill Frisell’s Big Sur Quintet

Sunday, Nov 10, 2013 7:30p

After Eyvind Kang and one-of-a-kind cartoonist Jim Woodring join him in an opening performance, Bill Frisell presents his Big Sur Quintet, fresh from a CD release and as riveting a band as any working today. Playing Frisell’s entrancing compositions, the group evokes the singular spacious beauty of the Southern California coastline. Joining the guitarist are Jenny Scheinman on violin, Seattle-based Eyvind Kang on viola, Hank Roberts on cello, and Rudy Royston on drums.
