Bill Frisell at Rhodes Thursday


Jazz guitar great Bill Frisell will play at Rhodes on Thursday night. He will be joined by trumpeter Ron Miles, drummer Kenny Wollesen, and bassist Tony Scherr. The group will perform the soundtrack to the film The Great Flood. Director Bill Morrison eschewed dialog in his depiction of the 1927 flood of the Mississippi. The flood is considered a driving force in the migration of African Americans out of the South throughout the mid 20th century. The film relies on the soundtrack that Frisell composed along with Morrison. The event is sponsored by the Mike Curb Institute for Music at Rhodes College. It starts at 7:30 p.m. in the McCallum Ballroom at Rhodes.
