David Friesen

JEFF ROSENBERG
8 pm, Saturday May 11 | $12.
Woodstock Wine & Deli
4030 SE Woodstock Ave.
 

[JAZZ] Internationally celebrated Portland bassist David Friesen puts his heart into his playing, certainly never more so than on his latest release. Brilliant Heart is an album of new work dedicated to Friesen\'s son, Scott, who died in 2010. The younger Friesen was a musician himself, as well as a photographer and painter. His colorful, evocative artwork adorns the CD and booklet, and will be on display at tonight\'s CD-release show. All three disciplines are celebrated by the album\'s compositions, which include \"Where the Light Falls,\" with Greg Goebel\'s pointillist piano evoking the play of light on film, and \"Violin,\" where Friesen\'s gently percolating bass, rather than the titular instrument, steers the contemplative piece. Like a loving memorial service, the album\'s tone is largely one of celebrating a life rather than mourning the dead, though it closes with the weighty, moving \"Scotty F.\"
