Acclaimed American jazz guitarist Joel Harrison returns to Europe with a stellar band that features long-time collaborator David Binney (alto saxophone), Michael Janisch (double bass), and Gerald Cleaver (drums). The night in part focuses on Harrison’s new Whirlwind Recordings album, Still Point: Turning World with new arrangements of the album material, alongside a range of his compositions from his 20 solo recordings.
Described as ‘protean and brilliant’ by the New York Times, guitarist/composer/vocalist Harrison has ‘created a new blueprint for jazz’ (New Orleans Times Picayune). His solo albums showcase a unique ability to shape sound from disparate sources, veering across the globe into rock, country, American roots music, Indian, West African, classical and more.
His long-time ally David Binney is one of the greatest saxophonists of our time, possessing ‘one of the most original minds in contemporary music’ according to Stereophile Magazine.
MOBO-nominated artist Michael Janisch (Joe Lovano, Lee Konitz) is an American based in London and one of the country’s most in-demand jazz bassists, and drummer Gerald Cleaver has contributed to many ground-breaking albums of recent years with artists such as Craig Taborn, William Parker and Henry Threadgill. A concert by modern greats simply not to be missed.
