[AMERICAN JAZZ] The Monterey Jazz Festival commissioned Seattle-based guitar master Bill Frisell to compose a work inspired by the titular California coastal paradise. The relaxed yet reflective masterpiece he created after spending a couple of secluded weeks at Glen Deven Ranch last year summons the varied beauties of its inspiration. Featuring members of both his 858 Quartet and Beautiful Dreamers jazz trio, Big Sur represents a pinnacle of Frisell’s masterful, two-decade-long melding of jazz, rock and American folk music. Somehow, it all coalesces into an utterly natural transcendence of genres that, in Frisell’s skilled hands and expansive imagination, seem to have no reason for existing in the first place.
