WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

String Choir is a unique ensemble simultaneously drawing on skills required of classical, jazz, and folk traditions. Harrison has arranged the music of legendary jazz drummer Paul Motian. Motian's forty years of composing, especially for his trio with Joe Lovano and Bill Frisell, has yielded a remarkable number of highly original tunes. His singular, under-appreciated sound is at once quizzical, playful, melancholy, and fierce. The music has an amazing breadth, capturing Harrison's eclectic, singular vision, yet still displaying Motian's elusive, tuneful approach. Also included are tunes by Monk and Scott Lafaro. A Sunnyside Records cd release show. Guitarist, composer, and vocalist Joel Harrison has one of the most unpredictable, fascinating discographies in contemporary music. He has developed a singular, lyrical voice through immersion in jazz, modern classical, world traditions, and American roots music. His rejection of stylistic boundaries has led him to freely wander wherever inspiration is found, from inner city blues bars to the finest concert halls. Harrison has released ten cds of his own compositions and arrangements on six different record labels since 1995. Harrison has received a number of prestigious commissions and fellowships from the Jazz Composer's Alliance, Meet the Composer, the Flagler Cary Trust, NYSCA, and the Jerome Foundation. and Chamber Music America.
