Z2 Entertainment presents All We Are Saying: Bill Frisell Explores the Music of John Lennon at the Boulder Theater tonight, June 23rd, 2012. Tickets are $20.00 general admission, $30 reserved & $40 gold circle.
Bill Frisell explores the songs of John Lennon on his new album, All We Are Saying, released September 27, 2011. Frisell has assembled a trusted ensemble consisting of Jenny Scheinman (violin), Tony Scherr (bass), Greg Leisz (guitars) and Kenny Wollesen (drums) to record his definitive take on the classic songs of John Lennon.
All We Are Saying had long been in the works - one could say as far back as the first time Bill heard the Beatles at the age of 13. Says Frisell, "John Lennon's music has been with me, the band, everybody, the world...seems like forever. The songs are part of us. In our blood. There was nothing we really needed to do to prepare for this. We've been preparing our whole lives.”
Songs featured on the CD include: "Across the Universe," "Revolution," "Nowhere Man,""Imagine," "Please Please Me," "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away," "Hold On," "In My Life," "Come Together," "Julia, Woman," "# 9 Dream," "Love," "Beautiful Boy," "Mother," and "Give Peace a Chance."
