AMG Review: Harris Eisenstadt’s Guewel

May 8, 2009

Michael G. Nastos’ review of drummer/composer Harris Eisenstadt‘s most recent recording, Guewel (Clean Feed Records), is now posted at AllMusic.com.

“Eisenstadt’s vision for this music, the arrangements he has certainly painstaking produced, and how this incredible band executes them to the max, results in some fabulous, truly original music that deserves many repeat listenings,” writes Nastos. 

“Guewel (the Wolof term for griot story tellers or hereditary musicians) is an essential modern recording that deserves all the accolades one can bestow, and is highly recommended to all progressive jazz and world music listeners without reservation.”
