Jazz saxophonist and clarinetist Wendell Harrison has long been known for taking his music into his own hands. Co-founder of the legendary Tribe record label and collective in the 1970’s, Harrison went on to establish Rebirth Inc., a non profit jazz performance and education organization in the 80’s. He also created WenHa the record label and publishing company which released many of his recordings. Through his solo work and his Mama’s Licking Stick Clarinet Ensemble, Harrison has gained more widespread respect for the clarinet, this often neglected, yet versatile instrument.

Currently, Wendell is wrapping up production on his latest project, "It's About Damn Time". This album, to be released on cd and vinyl, will focus on hard driving drum beats, funky bass lines and powerful guitar, in addition to Wendell's signature tenor sound. His track, "Love Juice", is a classic funk crowd pleaser.
