Joel Harrison and Angel Band: Free Country


Concert Details


Brilliant . . . protean

New York Times

An eerie, psychedelic ‘America The Beautiful’ tips its hat to Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock . . . a collection of great diversity and remarkable cohesion.


Angel Band is led by New York City–based guitarist/composer Joel Harrison, who arranges country and Appalachian music in a modern jazz context. The first two Free Country CDs appeared in 2003 and 2005 on the ACT label. Harrison now revisits this concept with diverse and imaginative renditions of timeless tunes by Bill Monroe, Bob Wills, Ola Belle Reed, Johnny Cash, and more. The music fires the imagination and stirs the heart. The band is a who’s who of jazz stars and features legendary drummer Brian Blade.
