American guitarist Bill Frisell has signed to the world famous Blue Note Record label for his new album titled ‘Harmony’, due for release this Autumn. It’s the first time the 68 year old has released a solo record with Blue Note, although he’s been associated with the label for decades, having played with Charles Lloyd, Norah Jones, Ron Carter and many more.

He says it’s an opportunity to reflect on the music he’s been playing for so many years: “It’s wild, at this point in my life, thinking back all the way to high school and all these strands of things coming together,” Frisell reflects. “And here I am now—I have an album coming out on Blue Note. Is it possible that I could be part of all this?”

Bill has also announced a UK live show - he’s playing London’s Cadogan Hall on Tuesday 15th October.
