Bill Frisell: Up & Down The Mississippi

Traveling Highway 61

"My father was born and grew up along Highway 61, way up in Minnesota, not far from Bob Dylan's childhood home. That road starts in New Orleans, follows the Mississippi River, up through the Delta, Memphis, St. Louis, Davenport, all the way up to the Canadian border. To think of the music that has sprung from up, down, and all along this way is truly staggering. The main artery. I am excited, humbled, and honored to have this opportunity to explore some of the many possibilities with these great musicians. I can't wait to dive in." - Bill Frisell

In the grand series finale of two years and six dynamic performances of the Roots of Americana series, Guitarist Bill Frisell, along with saxophonist Greg Osby, pianist Craig Taborn, and drummer Rudy Royston, embarks on a musical journey along the revered route, which Bob Dylan famously immortalized in 1965. Join us for a profoundly historic sojourn realized by Frisell through his unique embodiment of the the American landscape.

Free pre-concert discussion, nightly, 6pm & 8:30pm with special guest Bill Frisell (6pm only).

Enjoy live music by Jazz at Lincoln Center Youth Programs in the Atrium before the performance, starting at 6pm.
