Wendell Harrison

Reedman Wendell Harrison devotes great energy and commitment to the art of jazz. Beside heading his own clarinet ensemble, Harrison honchos his own WenHa record label, has written two books on bebop technique, is the artistic director at Rebirth, Inc., a multifaceted jazz education and performance company, and has two new discs headed to the racks from Enja.
