Description

The multi-talented Joe Harriott was a compelling and original artist, perfectly at home in any jazz context, from swinging big bands, small bebop combos and traditional jazz outfits to fusion orchestras and free jazz ensembles.

Unfortunately his broad talents and achievements were met with indifferance at the time, but now his contributions to the 50s and 60s jazz scene have been fully recognized.

This 4 CD set comes with a booklet with Joe Harriott's story and discographical information.
