BILL FRISELL - When You Wish Upon a Star

July/August 2018

When You Wish Upon a Star, guitarist Bill Frisell 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. Frisell, whose own music has been featured in major motion pictures like Finding Forrester and The Million Dollar Hotel performs with singer Petra Haden,bassist Thomas Morgan, 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.

"Movie songs are the ultimate ear worms. Who hasn’t whistled the theme from “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” or crooned a Disney lullaby? Bill Frisell can’t resist, either..........his latest album is devoted to composers famous for their work on the silver screen, including Ennio Morricone, Bernard Herrmann, Henry Mancini and Elmer Bernstein. Mr. Frisell and his quartet revisit vintage orchestrations on the album, When You Wish Upon a Star.” - The Wall Street Journal
