Bill Frisell: "When You Wish Upon A Star"
Bill Frisell returns to the Jaqua Concert Hall with his newest project: When You Wish Upon A Star", an exploration of the emotional power of classic film music. Bill draws upon the classic film and television music we have heard on screen and how it shapes and informs our emotional relationships to what we see. He is joined by singer Petra Haden, bassist Thomas Morgan, and drummer Rudy Royston in re-imagining time-honored gems such as "When You Wish Upon a Star", "To Kill a Mockingbird", "The Shadow of Your Smile", "Moon River", "You Only Live Twice", Frisell's own theme for Gary Larson’s television special, Tales from the Far Side and others.
