Join us for the Village at Winona jazz fest featuring: Truth in Jazz Big Band; Wally Brath and the Psalms Connexion ensemble; and our headliner – the Bill Frisell trio featuring Gregory Tardy & Tim Angulo.
Truth in Jazz, established in 1998 is one of the longest running big bands in Northern Indiana, helping keep jazz alive in Michiana!
Wally Brath currently leads the worship arts and music production programs at pro. He will be presenting his jazz Psalms project entitled – Connexion. Brath had the privilege of writing and recording these original settings of the Psalms last year with an amazing lineup of musicians including John Patitucci, Nikki Lerner, Jimmy Greene, Greg Tardy, Alex Norric, and Adam Cruz. Come experience the Psalms like you have never heard before! ()
Bill Frisell’s career as a guitarist and composer has spanned more than 40 years and many celebrated recordings, whose catalog has been cited by Downbeat as “the best recorded output of the decade.”
In recent years, Frisell has forged a distinctive and fruitful collaboration with the Blue Note label, releasing HARMONY, Valentine and FOUR to great acclaim.
“Frisell has had a lot of practice putting high concept into a humble package. Long hailed as one of the most distinctive and original improvising guitarists of our time, he has also earned a reputation for teasing out thematic connections with his music… There’s a reason that Jazz at Lincoln Center had him program a series called Roots of Americana.” – New York Times
Recognized as one of America’s 21 most vital and productive performing artists, Frisell was named an inaugural Doris Duke Artist in 2012. He is also a recipient of grants from United States Artists, Meet the Composer among others. In 2016, he was a beneficiary of the first FreshGrass Composition commission to preserve and support innovative grassroots music. Upon San Francisco Jazz opening their doors in 2013, he served as one of their Resident Artistic Directors. Bill is the subject of a documentary film by director Emma Franz, entitled Bill Frisell: A Portrait, which examines his creative process in depth, as well as an extensive biography by Philip Watson, Beautiful Dreamer: The Guitarist Who Changed The Sound of American Music.
