BILL FRISELL

THE ARTSCENTER, CARRBORO | FRIDAY, NOV. 20

Staring at a stand of charts of songs in an NPR office in 2012, the guitarist Bill Frisell did what he so often does: He got charmingly geeky about songs and their structures, awestruck by how great they could be. "Music is a trip," he said, looking down and hesitating as the audience laughed in his spell. "I'm 60 years old, and today is still the first day. The whole thing is in front of me." Frisell then offered up a transfixing rendition of "Strawberry Fields Forever," its sparkling melody refracting into a glorious kaleidoscope of harmony. These days, Frisell engages in a lot of big multimedia projects for arts spaces and the like, but it's a joy just to revel in the sounds and songs he loves. He should have many chances to do just that on this trio tour date, where one of the most refined instrumentalists in the world puts his gilded tone in front of drummer Gerald Cleaver and bassist Tony Scherr. Get transfixed. 8 p.m., $32–$38, 300-G E. Main St, Carrboro, 919-929-2787, www.artscenterlive.org. —Grayson Haver Currin
