Top of my jazz stack!

"Sometimes I have to wonder where I've been all my life & what I've been doing. Having been around music all my life and having been radio disc jockey for 20 years, how could I have missed Gene Harris? A few weeks ago I was listening to WRTI FM, Temple University public radio out of Philadelphia when the dj played a cut from a Gene Harris cd. I was floored and immediately went to "Music" to look him up. lists 34 cd's by Harris, so how did I miss him all these years? Well, no matter. Now that I've discovered him, all I can say is that this one of the finest jazz pianists I've heard with an equally potent quartet. I only have one other Harris cd to compare this one to (Gene Harris plus 1) and I have to say I like this one the best even though the other is a live performance. The selections are nicely balanced and the group just swings the whole way through the entire album. If you've got company coming or you're just by yourself, this album will fill the bill. I feel certain this will NOT be my last Gene Harris purchase. Right now "Listen Here" is on the top of my jazz stack."
This is wonderful!

"Gene Harris is a true master of his craft. This quartet makes beautiful music; this group is one of which I want all their recordings (and I'm in process of getting it). The mood of the music is very uplifting! The audio signal is clear, as are all Concord Records I've bought. This quartet consists of Gene Harris on piano (and band leader), Ron Eschete on guitar, Jeff Hamilton on drums, and the late GREAT Ray Brown on bass! All ten tracks are beautiful, beautiful."

"In classical music for piano, I think Frederic Chopin is the most inspired composer. His melodies and harmony are the most beautiful ones. Franz Liszt is the greatest virtuose and his music reflects an unbeatable technique. Bach is the analytical, polyphonic, intrincate composer.

For people that do not know Gene Harris, here is my mathematical comparison:

(OscarPeterson)/Liszt = (BillEvans)/Bach = (GeneHarris)/Chopin
