Saxophonist and clarinetist Wendell Harrison plays big, lives big and produces big results. On his instruments, he stomps and swings. Describing his music as bebop meets free jazz, he’s the kind of jazz musician who does things on a large scale. Early in his career, Harrison demonstrated that he was destined to turn the jazz world inside out – he helped to put Detroit on the map as a city that produced not only luxury automobiles but also gifted saxophone players.
