The Great Flood
The Great Flood is an evening long suite - 75 minutes of original music to be composed and performed by Bill Frisell with accompanying film and staging by Bill Morrison, reflecting on the Mississippi River Flood of 1927 and the ensuing transformation of American society, culture and music. Please watch the video clip for the details on this very exciting project! Also there is a comprehensive live review from No Depression.
"For those of you interested in finding out more about the Great Flood of 1927 I highly recommend reading "Rising Tide" by John M. Barry and watching the PBS documentary, "Fatal Flood". Also, this years annual music issue of Oxford American magazine (which is always great) is all about Mississippi." - Bill Frisell
