Joel Harrison

Spirit House


Not really sure about this one. I am a fairly big jazz fan and to me this album really didn't sound anything like that. Maybe i am just used to having a smoother sound and the typical instruments when it comes to jazz. This jazz band uses the Bassoon, which A, i have never heard on an album before,and B, didn't even know it could be involved in a Jazz Band. I was not a big fan of this one, but there was a unique sound that i am sure some people just love.
