Guitar icon Bill Frisell's intention is, in his words, "to explore the beginnings of American music (the backbone) up through George Gershwin and beyond" through three concerts he is curating this season for Jazz at Lincoln Center's Roots of Americana series. The first of these concerts,"Gershwin & Beyond," investigates the music of William Billings, Stephen Foster, and Charles Ives, as well as Gershwin's Porgy and Bess. Frisell is joined by three fellow master interpreters of American vernacular song: vocalist-banjoist-guitarist-pianist-fiddler Sam Amidon, pianist-composer-leader of the Bandwagon Jason Moran, and mezzo-soprano Alicia Hall Moran.
