Harris is widely admired as a musician’s musician for his work — on guitar and bass guitar — with creative stylists ranging from Sonny Rollins and Jack DeJohnette to Bill Frisell and Bobby Previte. Here, he takes up the composer/leader role for the fourth time on record, eliciting probing mainstream jazz performances of freshness and depth. Even the instrument Harris employs on Rendezvous — a visually striking Taylor acoustic bass guitar, rather than the common solid-body electric bass or the traditional upright bass — signifies the attitude that distinguishes this project. For Rendezvous, Harris assembled a group of players — all experienced bandleaders and recording artists — with character and personality in their sound. The all-star lineup includes Marty Ehrlich, Steve Nelson, Billy Drummond and Art Baron.

Recorded at Blue Heaven Studios.
