Bill Frisell and Beautiful Dreamers on deck for Bellevue fest | Concert preview

Mercurial guitarist Bill Frisell has been popping up all over the place lately, but not often with Beautiful Dreamers, which plays the Bellevue Jazz Festival Saturday, May 31.  If you’ve never heard this minimalist chamber trio — with Seattle’s Eyvind Kang, viola, and Rudy Royston, drums — do so. These three guys get more big, unusual — and playful — sounds out of three instruments than anyone since guitarist Jim Hall teamed up with clarinetist Jimmy Giuffre and trombonist Bob Brookmeyer in the late ’50s.
