Grammy award-winning guitarist and composer Bill Frisell reworks the music of John Lennon with a full band in All We Are Saying.
Onthe 50th anniversary of the Beatles' first American release, this is the perfect way to enjoy favorites like "Imagine," "Come Together" and "Across the Universe." Frisell plays his beautiful harmonies with violinist Jenny Scheinman, pedal steel and acoustic guitarist Greg Leisz, bassist Tony Scherr and drummer Rudy Royston.
Join us before the show with WYEP Music Director Mike Sauter for a Beatles: Behind the Scenes workshop. Mike will lead participants on an in-depth look at the making of some of Lennon's best-loved songs. Admission to the workshop is FREE with concert ticket. Just RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulated by the Vancouver Sun as a "stunningly original and sensitive tribute," Bill Frisell and his talented ensemble discover long-hidden nuances within Lennon's most recognizable Beatles and solo hit melodies.
By reintroducing the legendary rock icon's sonic standards into a purely instrumental and openly modern context, Frisell aims not to reinvent the music of John Lennon. Instead, according to DownBeat magazine, he provides "an intelligent, no-frills presentation of the Lennon catalog."
