Allan Harris Trio: 100 Years of Nat King Cole

Nov 1, 2019


“Allan Harris started his set with “Paper Moon” with energy yet with an easygoing approach that is not about exaggerating the size and range of his voice but about floating with jazz rhythms and a friendly narrative approach. ” —

Internationally renowned vocalist, guitarist and composer Allan Harris returns to the Arts Center to honor the 100th birthday of Nat King Cole. Over the past 20 years, Harris has steadily developed his reputation as one of the finest vocalists of his era. Brooklyn-born and Harlem-based, he has forged his sterling credentials through his ten previous albums, covering a broad range of contexts, all netted together within the rich territory of the jazz tradition. With this performance, Harris honors the legacy of Nat King Cole, singing favorites and lesser-known gems that will make for an “Unforgettable” evening.
