Bill Frisell at The Hillman Center for Performing Arts

On the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' first American release, this is the perfect way to enjoy favorites like "Imagine," "Come Together" and "Across the Universe." Frisell plays his beautiful harmonies with violinist Jenny Scheinman, pedal steel and acoustic guitarist Greg Leisz, bassist Tony Scherr and drummer Kenny Wollesen.

Congratulated by the Vancouver Sun as a "stunningly original and sensitive tribute," the renowned jazz improvisation guitarist and his considerably capable ensemble discover long-hidden nuances within Lennon's most recognizable Beatles and solo hit melodies.

By reintroducing the legendary rock icon's sonic standards into a purely instrumental and openly modern context, Frisell aims not to reinvent the music of John Lennon. Instead, according to DownBeat magazine, he provides "an intelligent, no-frills presentation of the Lennon catalog."

Before Frisell's performance, Midday Mix host and Beatles fanatic Mike Sauter will present The Beatles: Behind the Scenes, a workshop dissecting the creative and production processes of classic Beatles songs.
