Spirit House

Featuring: Joel Harrison (guitar/compositions/arrangements), Cuong Vu (trumpet), Paul Hanson (electric and acoustic bassoon), Kermit Driscoll (upright and electric bass), and Brian Blade (drums), this unique ensemble recorded as the culmination of a west coast tour. The name "Spirit House" comes from miniature structures used in East Asian societies as a shelter for the deities, a home of sorts for those invisible forces that guide the visible world. That idea seemed the very definition of an empathetic music ensemble.
