Bill Frisell's Big Sur Quintet

Born of a Monterey Jazz Festival commission in 2012, Bill Frisell’s Big Sur features an hour of original music, 19 compositions that explicitly reference the coastal-mountain environment. Titles such as “A Good Spot,” “Going to California,” “A Beautiful View,” “Big Sur,” and “On the Lookout” evoke the remote and pastoral setting with musical blends of chamber jazz, country, classical, folk, and rock. Joined by violinist Jenny Scheinman, violist Eyvind Kang, cellist Hank Roberts, and drummer Rudy Royston, the group premiered the music at the festival in September 2012. Six months later, the quintet recorded Big Sur at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California, with longtime Frisell collaborators Lee Townsend and Adam Muñoz producing and engineering, respectively.
