The Jazz Session #40: Joel Harrison

Jason Crane interviews composer and guitarist Joel Harrison. With The Wheel (innova, 2008), Harrison straddles the line between written and improvised music, composing for an ensemble made up of a string quartet and jazz quintet. The results are surprising and powerful. The majority of the album is composed of the five-movement suite “The Wheel,” and the record ends with the moving tribute, “In Memoriam: Dana Brayton.”

CONTEST: Listen to the show to hear how you can win a copy of the The Wheel!
