Full Show Friday: Bill Frisell Plays John Lennon 2012

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...Bill Frisell!

It's Jazzy January here at RtBE, so get ready to kick off 2014 with some different styled shows every Friday, we are skewing into new (or more recent) jazz land this month but It's All Cool Daddy'O! The farthest back we are looking is 2009 to prove there is amazing live jazz still being performed no matter what Ken Burns says.

We close up this special series with a doozy, Bill Frisell playing John Lennon from La Villete Jazz Festival 2012

Well January has come to an end so we will finish this series and ease back into our mostly rock and roll focus with a Jazz legend's take on a rock star's catalog (we ended 2013 with The Beatles so this seems only natural). Bill Frisell reworks John Lennon's catalog into his own guitar laden jazz style here live with some friends from 2012. This is a really cool one and if you haven't known many of the songs or artists this month, things should sound (slightly) more familiar here. Fret not, next month we are back to more known Friday artists....
