Bill Frisell and Brad Turner at Capilano University Theatre North Vancouver

Event Details

BlueShore Financial Centre for the Performing Arts at Capilano University


We’re thrilled to welcome one of our favourite jazz guitarists, Bill Frisell for a special artist-in-residence program this fall. Frisell will work directly with Capilano University’s own jazz faculty member, Brad Turner in this debut collaboration of two modern masters culminating in a grand finale on our stage. There seems to be no end to guitar virtuoso Frisell’s innovative, imaginative and boundary-pushing yet still accessible approach to jazz, making him one of the most respected and influential jazz guitarists of his time. Combine this with Turner’s phenomenal talents as a trumpeter, pianist, drummer and composer and one of Canada’s most in-demand musicians and you have one sure-to-be adventurous and entertaining night of jazz.

“Frisell is a revered figure among musicians – like Miles Davis and few others, his signature is built from pure sound and inflection; an anti-technique that is instantly identifiable.” ~The Philadelphia Inquirer

“He’s (Brad Turner) kind of Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Keith Jarrett all rolled into one.” ~Globe and Mail
