Jazz guitarist Joel Harrison is of that modern generation which embraces a wide variety of musical styles and genres while still devoting itself to jazz. Harrison acknowledges inspiration from rock music (he's recorded an entire disc of George Harrison songs), bebop, world music, and country music. On URBAN MYTHS, Harrison tips his guitar case to the first flowerings of fusion--the late 1960s and early `70s discs by Miles Davis, Joe Zawinul, and Chick Corea. Yet there's nothing backward-looking about MYTHS--he doesn't imitate the classic fusion sound, but rather builds upon it in his own manner, adding some blistering blues-rock guitar and free alto sax to the mix. URBAN MYTHS brims with attractive tunes, bracing ensemble playing, and soloing that ranges from lyrical to serrated.
