It is purely coincidence, no doubt, that Allen Ginsberg wrote his epic poem “Kaddish” three years after the death of his mother Naomi, and eclectic jazz guitarist Bill Frisell began work on his musical accompaniment to that poem three years after the death of his mother Jane.

Guitarist Bill Frisell, right, call is “quite an honor” to put a score to Allen Ginsberg’s iconic “Kaddish.”
