"Add Joel Harrison to Metheny and Frisell as guitarist/ composers who have created a new blueprint for jazz."
New Orleans Times Picayune
Steve Smith, New York Times
"One of the finest composers on the scene."
Minneapolis Star Tribune
"The Wheel is a staggering work of indescribable beauty"
"A wildly diverse improviser/composer/arranger with a penchant for unorthodox instrumental combinations, guitarist Joel Harrison has sustained one of the most unpredictable discographies of the last decade with his chimerical mix of jazz, blues, chamber music, African and Indian folk music, Appalachian tunes and old school country songs."
Troy Collins, All About Jazz
