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.”
