Bill Frisell é um dos mais originais e inovadores guitarristas da atualidade, bem como um dos músicos mais ativos e produtivos dos últimos 35 anos, contando com cerca de 40 álbuns como líder, mais de uma dezena de discos como co-líder (com Jim Hall, Fred Hersch, John Zorn, Elvis Costello, Vinícius Cantuária, Petra Haden, Thomas Morgan…) e cerca de 130 gravações como sideman, de entre as quais se destacam os 15 discos que gravou, ao lado de Joe Lovano, naquele que foi o mais aclamado trio do baterista Paul Motian.
Entre a enorme diversidade de combinações instrumentais que globalmente caracterizam a sua obra, o trio de guitarra, baixo e bateria é um formato que Frisell tem vindo a revisitar periodicamente, sempre com enorme sucesso, e no qual, com o baixista Tony Scherr e o baterista Kenny Wollensen, o guitarrista se apresenta no Funchal Jazz.
Génios musicais colidem num trio que nos vem apresentar uma série de novas e excitantes composições originais.

Bill Frisell has quietly been the most brilliant and unique voice to come along in jazz guitar since Wes Montgomery (…) he may also be one of the most promising composers of American music on the current scene.
Frisell is a revered figure among musicians - like Miles Davis and few others, his signature is built from pure sound and inflection; an anti-technique that is instantly identifiable.
The Philadelphia Inquirer
Bill Frisell is the Clark Kent of the electric guitar (…) But besides being a guitar genius, he's turned into a terrific songwriter.
What's really distinctive is Frisell's feel for the shape of songs, for their architecture; it's a virtuosity of deep structure rather than surface.
Bill Frisell plays the guitar like Miles Davis played the trumpet.
The New Yorker
The electric guitar sound of the decade (…) His guitar sound is unmistakable (…) a lyrical victory of man over machine, of personality over mechanics, of message over mathematics.
Minneapolis Star Tribune
I’m a fan of Bill Frisell’s music for a lot of reasons.
He just makes everything better and takes it to a whole other level of complete heaven where the angels join the session.
He’s had one of the loudest impacts on creative guitar.
