Joel Harrison String Choir
Allusive, haunting, and questioning, Paul Motian's compositions tend to reflect his drumming style--or vice versa. On his latest album, String Choir: The Music of Paul Motian, guitarist-composer Joel Harrison rearranges Motian's moods for fellow guitarist Liberty Ellman and an improvisational string quartet. Lacking a rhythm section, the music stands on its own, liturgical and playful by turns, often suggestive but never less than assured.
