    Saw Bill Frisell's "When You Wish Upon a Star" tour at the Old Town School in Chicago last week, with Eyvind Kang on viola, and Petra Haden (Charlie Haden's daughter) on fantastic vocals.
    As always, Bill's playing was glorious and on the edge. He was playing a Collings 335-style guitar. Viola is a great warm second lead voice, and Petra H. tore the roof off. See them. If you're near NY they'll be in residence at the Village Vanguard at the end of March.

    My wife and I went to see them at the Freight and Salvage in Berkeley, CA last Friday - same band. My first ever Bill Frisell show - it was awesome. I've been listening to him for many years but the stars never lined up to see him live until Friday night.

    Saturday night I saw John Scofield with Joe Lovano and band in Palo Alto. When does an embarrassment of riches like that ever happen? Great weekend of music it was...
