Completed by NYC bassist Kermit Driscoll (bass) and the influential eminence of drummer Brian Blade, Harrison has created a genuine improvisers' record with a conceptual focus very much on the intuitive skills of these specific players.
The richly-colored palette of Harrison's output is influenced by many guitar greats such as Bill Frisell, John Scofield and Jeff Beck, with solid roots in the American rock and country eras of Duane Allman and Danny Gatton. Add to this an unerring passion for cross-pollination of musical cultures and genres, plus a distinctively vocal guitar expressiveness, and it becomes clear why Harrison's evolving compositional sound worlds continue to engage.
Personnel: Joel Harrison (guitar, voice), Cuong Vu (trumpet), Paul Hanson (bassoon), Kermit Driscoll (bass), Brian Blade (drums, voice)
