Jazz at Lincoln Center
With trumpeter Bruce Harris, alto saxophonist Patrick Bartley, pianist Ehud Asherie, bassist Neil Caine, and drummer Aaron Kimmel Bruce Harris is an immensely talented rising star trumpeter seen regularly at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola alongside New York’s most swinging musicians. He recently led a hip exploration of bebop pioneer Fats Navarro at Dizzy’s and then kicked off the 2016 Generations in Jazz Festival. Now, as part of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Dizzy Gillespie Festival, Harris will once again exemplify our mantra that “all jazz is modern.” He always brings together some of New York’s most in-demand musicians, and we can’t wait to hear their take on Harris’ chosen Dizzy tunes. They perform each night this weekend for one set only at 7:30pm; the 9:30pm sets will be trumpeter Theo Croker’s tribute to Dizzy, in a show he calls Kush to Cool.
