 Notes & Reviews
 
2016 release. When You Wish Upon a Star features Grammy Award-winning jazz guitarist Bill Frisell's arrangements and interpretations of music for film and television. The album is more than an homage to a set of iconic scores and the choice of music is both inspired and carefully balanced. For the first time in many years, Frisell used vocals on many of the tracks. Petra Haden, daughter of the late bass player Charlie Haden, is the featured vocalist and her vocal style is a perfect fit for Frisell's arrangements. Included on the album are the classic music themes from To Kill a Mockingbird, Psycho, Once Upon a Time in the West and The Godfather all with Bill's refined interpretations. Bill Frisell is one of the leading and most innovative guitarists of our time. Although his work is steeped in jazz, his music includes characteristics of rock, country and bluegrass, among various other styles. Such liberality explains his willingness to expand his tonal palette beyond that of a typical jazz guitarist and he has carved out a niche by virtue of his sound. A Grammy winner for Best Contemporary Jazz Album in 2005, Bill is one of the most singular musicians of his generation and has released over 30 albums since his debut recording in 1983.
