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.”
