The Allan Harris Band

The Allan Harris Band

Jazz at Lincoln Center

With vocalist/guitarist Allan Harris, pianist/organist Pascal Le Boeuf, drummer/cajón player Shirazette Tinnin, and bassist Nimrod Speaks

“…the warmth of Tony Bennett, the bite and rhythmic sense of Sinatra, and the sly elegance of Nat King Cole.” – The Miami Herald

The award-winning Allan Harris is a Brooklyn-born, Harlem-raised vocalist, guitarist, and composer with a powerful baritone voice and a gift for blending jazz, blues, R&B, rock, and a bit of Latin music. His last appearance at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola was an album release party for his hit record Black Bar Jukebox, and he now returns to celebrate his follow-up record, Nobody’s Gonna Love You Better (Black Bar Jukebox Redux). Says Harris, “What I’m doing is taking songs from my childhood, my jukebox days, as a kid in Harlem and in Brooklyn, and trying to morph it into the next sound.” With new originals and favorites by such artists as Steely Dan, Jimi Hendrix, Stan Getz/João Gilberto, Eddie Jefferson, and Ray Charles, there’s something here for everyone. The band is as fun and diverse as the repertoire, so we hope you come out and help us throw Harris another well-deserved album release celebration.
