Bill Frisell interview: “I hear a song and have to ask myself if it’s remembered or new”

Bill Frisell’s latest album, HARMONY, is the first outing under his own name for the legendary Blue Note label. Alyn Shipton spoke to the influential guitarist about the origins and evolution of this song-heavy project, which features the vocal delights of Petra Hayden (daughter of Charlie), as well as his recollections of working with the late-great Ginger Baker
