GEORG WISSEL

The Arte of Navigation

WENDELL HARRISON
The Eighth House: Riding with Pluto
Entropy Stereo ESR 009

Although both these CDs are solo sessions featuring inquisitive woodwind players improvising through a couple of reeds each, the differences go deeper than the fact that one man is young and German and the other older and American.

Essentially, like many other practitioners of EuroImpov, Cologne-based alto and tenor saxophonist Georg Wissel is interested in creating his version of free improvised music without the encumbrance of other instrumentalists. Wendell Harrison, on the other hand, who lives in Detroit, is a veteran tenor saxophonist and clarinetist exhibiting his jazz chops and technique on this is first solo session. MORE
