Barry Harris

Piano legend Barry Harris discusses his career in jazz and his first album in four years, “Live in Rennes.” It offers a rich view of his improvising expertise and a dose of his well-known charisma. Barry Harris is performing with his working trio—John Webber on bass and Leroy Williams on drums—at the Village Vanguard July 20-25.

In the 1980's I was under the tutelage of Barry Harris when we all use to gather at Mark Morganelli's Loft as well as added my voice in his earliest Symphony Space concerts. Still today, he is the finest teacher, musician and humanitarian and I love him for all that he has given me.

I completely agree with Barry Harris's comment about the parallel btwn. early music & jazz. I play early music, & the really early stuff from the Middle Ages has key changes & meter changes all over the place. Later, more & more aspects of how the music was to be played got locked down. I hope that never happens to jazz!

I also completely agree w/the exclamation point at the end of the sentence on today's page that says you'll be talking to Barry Harris!

Thanks Leonard for having the wonderfully talented Mr. Harris on your show. I dig it the most when you have jazz artists on your program.
