Guitarist, composer, arranger, lyricist, writer, educator, and vocalist Joel Harrison has created a new blueprint for jazz” (New Orleans Times-Picayune). Harrison’s music may be founded on jazz but veers into classical, rock, country, and all manner of American roots music. Succinctly described by the New York Times as “protean… brilliant.” Harrison is the founder and director of the Alternative Guitar Summit, a yearly festival devoted to new and unusual guitar music which Pat Metheny called the Summit “one of the most interesting and distinguished forums for guitar on the planet.” He is the author of “Guitar Talk: conversations with visionary players.”
