A biography of acclaimed jazz guitarist Bill Frisell is coming to bookstores this month.

Authored by U.K. music journalist Philip Watson, Bill Frisell, Beautiful Dreamer: The Guitarist Who Changed the Sound of American Music chronicles Frisell’s life and career as “one of the most innovative and influential musicians at work today,” according to a synopsis.

The biography will trace Frisell’s early years playing clarinet in orchestras and marching bands and follow him through the many stages and personas of  his professional career: a devotee of jazz master Jim Hall, house guitarist for ECM Records, edgy New York experimentalist, plaintive country and bluegrass picker, pioneering bandleader, prolific composer and arranger, and celebrated Grammy Award winner.
