Newsweek: “Tom Harrell is a pure melodic genius! He is widely recognized as one of the most creative and dynamic jazz instrumentalists and composers of our time.”

In Harrell’s most current project, COLORS OF A DREAM, he takes the piano-less concept into a new realm. This sextet is one more example of Tom’s constantly evolving artistic vision. Quoting Tom: “I try to make each composition unique. That’s my goal—each composition is a world unto itself. I want people to enjoy it, even if they cry.”

Harrell is an edgy, enigmatic presence who lets loose musical declamations both soaring and powerfully restrained. None of it is contrived...

Quoting Esperanza Spalding (from an email to Harrell about their Colors Of A Dream date at the Vanguard): “It was one of the richest experiences of my life.” Referring to Harrell, she added, “The breadth and variation in his playing, arranging and writing is mesmerizing, totally inspiring and uplifting to say the least!”

When asked about his next project, Harrell’s reply placed him in full enigma mode. “I’ve done pretty much everything I’d like to do,” he explained. “As Mulligan said, ‘I just maybe want to play one more tune.’”
