CD Reviews

Great Harris
Bomojaz | South Central PA, USA | 09/05/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Barry Harris, out of Detroit, where he got a chance to play with all the modern innovators as they passed through town (Miles, Wardell, Sonny Stitt, even Lester Young), was one of the finest bebop pianists in jazz. And this is one of his very best recordings, made for Xanadu records in 1975. He's joined by Gene Taylor on bass and Leroy Williams on drums. Some of Tadd Dameron's most important compositions (LADYBIRD, HOT HOUSE, THE CHASE, SOULTRANE, OUR DELIGHT) get some of the best treatments they've ever received by another pianist here. Harris's style is of course close to Bud Powell's, but there's a difference, and it comes with Harris's shadings within the melodies. Harris is a very melodic player, regardless of tempo. This is an excellent CD. Highly recommended."
"The Barry Harris trio is excellent."

"Tadd Demeron was one of the greatest composers of the era know as "bebop." Most of his work has been neglected or ignored by contempoary players. Mr. Harris pays a heartfelt tribute to bebop's finest composer. This is a wonderful cd and should be included in every collection of jazz piano trios."
