Allan Harris salutes Eddie Jefferson

Allan Harris salutes Eddie Jefferson image

The New York singer and guitarist marks Jefferson’s centenary for us, with a concert that reminds what a sensational impact the Detroit singer had on jazz – pretty much inventing vocalese – and what a great artist, Allan Harris is: “the warmth of Tony Bennett, the bite and rhythmic sense of Sinatra, and the sly elegance of Nat ‘King' Cole” (Miami Herald).

“A protean talent” (New York Times).
