Nice reference the other day (5 Sep) to Jamaican alto saxophonist, Joe Harriott in Stuart Jeffries piece on Peter Doig in The Guardian. It’s great to know that this wonderful contemporary artist is a Harriott fan who makes the link that Harriott himself made (and as we are exploring in Parallel – A Tribute To Joe Harriott) between music and art.
