Influential jazz/country/rock guitarist Bill Frisell will head to Portlandia this February for a special two-night event as a part of the city’s PDX Jazz Festival. On January 24, performing at the famous Crystal Ballroom, Frisell will pay tribute to three iconic musicians: pedal-steel guitarist Wesley Webb “Speedy” West, guitarist/fiddle player Jimmy Bryant, and pop legend John Lennon. The following night, Frisell will take the stage for a solo concert and later perform with the 858 Quartet, his world-renowned improvisational ensemble.
