Tom Harrell - "Invitation"

Tom Harrell has managed to fight courageously (and successfully) against schizophrenia to become one of jazz's top trumpeters of the 1980s and '90s. On-stage, he is totally focused on his playing and seems to only come alive when he is improvising. Harrell grew up in Northern California and toured with Stan Kenton (1969), Woody Herman (1970-1971), and Horace Silver (1973-1977). He moved to New York in the mid-'70s, and played during this period with Cecil Payne, Bill Evans (1979), Lee Konitz's Nonet (1979-1981), and George Russell (1982). Harrell traveled the world with the Phil Woods Quintet (1983-1989) and went on to generally lead his own bands, recording for Contemporary and Chesky before landing at RCA for 1996's Labyrinth; subsequent outings include 1997's The Art of Rhythm and 1999's Time's Mirror. His style mixes together the power of Clifford Brown with the lyricism of Chet Baker. Scott Yanow, All Music Guide
