|Jazz Explorations of George Harrison.
Joel Harrison's latest project is a singularly original journey into the music of George Harrison. Joel reinvents George's songs, with stunning improvisational, textural, harmonic, and rhythmic twists. His band, which includes Jazz icons such as David Liebman, Uri Caine, and David Binney inhabit the arrangements with remarkable exuberance, pathos, and creativity, roaming in a multitude of directions, delighting in surprise, contrast, and exploration. Fans of George Harrison will be thrilled that for once it is he, not Lennon and McCartney, who is front and center.
