March 14, 2018: The Kevin Harris Project
NY based jazz pianist Kevin Harris plays a distinctive combination of traditional and contemporary music with the unmistakable influences of Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, J.S. Bach, Scott Joplin, and the folkloric rhythms of Cuba. Yes, you read that right! "Harris tiptoes & pirouettes across a relaxed set of ballads and lightly soulful grooves, he possesses a spare style and a gentle touch." - Jazz Times
