Dynamic NYC Vocalist pays Tribute to Nat 'King' Cole & Eddie Jefferson with his NYC Based Band Live at Nighttown!
Featuring: Allan Harris-vocals, Arcoiris Sandoval-piano, Nimrod Speaks-bass, & Shirazette Tinnin-drums.
Honoring two of the world’s most iconic jazz vocalists, DownBeat award winning jazz vocalist/guitarist/composer ALLAN HARRIS has enthralled audiences across the globe with his exciting rendition of music from his recordings the Genius of Eddie Jefferson and Long Live the King, a tribute to Nat ‘King’ Cole recorded live at the Kennedy Center. 2018 was the centennial of Eddie Jefferson’s birth and 2019 is the centennial of Nat Cole’s birth…by putting these two artists together in one performance, Harris demonstrates how these two very different artists, born in the same era, bridged the gulf between swinging, hep cat vocalese and the nostalgic crooning of the American Standard Songbook.
Not only has Harris has been described as the “heir apparent to Nat King Cole” (New York Times) but his tribute to the great Eddie Jefferson has won him critical acclaim around the world.
