The Smooth Sax of Joel Harbans

Joel Harbans

Many, many years ago I moved my family into our first post-divorce home. We are a fairly friendly bunch, quite sociable, and we got to know our neighbours quite quickly. 
One day I as I was taking out the trash, I heard the most gorgeous sax I'd ever heard (other than Mike Murley, my not so secret crush!). 
The sweet sounds were emanating from a few doors down. 
Later that day the pre-teen youngest child from that very home was out walking his dog. I stopped this 'kid' and asked him what CD he had been listening to. It took him a while to figure out what I was talking about. Finally he said '' OH! You must have heard me practising!''. 
I was floored, and have followed his jazz education and career ever since. 

Now it is your turn to discover him. 

I present to you, 

Joel Harbans
