Multi-instrumentalist Matt Harris has recorded with Neil Young, Chicago, Richard Marx, Leon Russell, and others, though he didn't put out a release under his own name until 2002. That album, Slightly Elliptical Orbit, was issued on Russell's label, and Russell further lent a hand by co-writing nine of the 12 songs with Harris. Russell perhaps pigeonholed his protege's sensibility all too accurately in a press release, where he declared, "I asked Matt where he got his classical training, and he answered 'from Journey and Foreigner.'" ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi
