Guitarist Bill Frisell (pictured) is returning to St. Louis to perform at 8:30 p.m. Sunday, April 28 at the Old Rock House.

Frisell's last St. Louis appearance was with his quartet in May 2011 at the ORH. This time, he'll be with the ensemble known as Beautiful Dreamers, which also includes Eyvind Kang on viola and Rudy Royston on drums. (You can read of review a show they did in 2011 at the Village Vanguard here.)

A veteran of more than 30 years on the international music scene, Frisell incorporates a variety of influences into his sound, including jazz, country, folk, Americana, classical, noise, and free improv. He's worked with a diverse range of artists from various genres, including Paul Motian, John Zorn, Wayne Horvitz, Elvis Costello, Bono, T-Bone Burnett, Paul Simon, McCoy Tyner, Ornette Coleman, Brian Eno and Ry Cooder.

Like his previous appearance at ORH, this show is part of their “Listening Room Series," for which the club adds more tables and chairs and offers reserved seating to create a cabaret-type setting. Unlike the previous show, which was 21-and-up only, this one is all ages.

Tickets for Bill Frisell's Beautiful Dreamers at the Old Rock House are $36 for reserved seats, $26 for general admission, and will go on sale at 5:00 p.m. next Wednesday, February 20 via Metrotix.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
