Harrison2 (Harrison squared) is a Toronto-based modern jazz quartet that features two up-and-coming instrumentalists, Harrison Vetro and Harrison Argatoff, alongside two mainstays of the Canadian jazz scene, Mike Murley and Steve Wallace.

The group hatched from a chance encounter between Vetro and Wallace in early 2016, at the University of Toronto, while Vetro’s drum teacher, Nick Fraser, was on tour. Wallace was asked to sub in for a lesson, with the aim of offering his wealth of experience and some new perspective. As he and Vetro worked on time, tempo, and rhythmic feel, Wallace immediately recognized a natural musical connection. Wanting to end the lesson with some fun, Argatoff was invited to jump in and play some music as a trio. Wallace recognized and was inspired by both Vetro’s and Argatoff’s musicality, thoughtfulness, and creativity, very much in the Lennie Tristano/Warne Marsh vein.

The three resolved to get together and play again, landing a gig at The Rex in September of 2016. They asked Murley to join them; thus was a band born. With an agreed upon selection of standards, and some out-of-the-way jazz originals, the gig had an open and spontaneous feeling which was immensely satisfying. Having played together on countless occasions, Murley and Wallace were inspired by the stimulus of playing with fresh musicians. And likewise, both Argatoff and Vetro were pushed to rise to the level of such musical masters.

Harrison2 is touring across Canada in the winter 2020, in support of their debut full length album.
