See below for additional information.
Celebrated guitarist/composer Bill Frisell and award-winning filmmaker Bill Morrison have crafted a highly personal and illuminating musical vision, inviting us on a journey of discovery around the devastation wrought by the Mississippi River Flood of 1927. Frisell has composed an evening-length suite of original music accompanying film and staging from critically acclaimed experimental filmmaker Bill Morrison. Frisell’s evocative score harnesses a wide-ranging musical palette woven by the extraordinary composer’s vast vocabulary of American roots music and adds an emotional storytelling layer to the on-screen images that words alone can rarely attain.
Presented in association with Angel City Jazz Festival and the Jazz Bakery.
