Igor Butman-Moscow Jazz Orchestra w/ special guest Allan Harris
Jan 12, 2014 07:00 AM - 09:00 AM
Come swing into the New Year as Keystone Korner Nights continues with Igor Butman & the Moscow Jazz Orchestra with special guest Allan Harris on January 12 at Le Poisson Rouge. Produced and programmed by jazz guru Todd Barkan, Keystone Korner Nights kicks off this evening’s performance at 7pm.
This powerful jazz orchestra from Russia is fronted by tenor saxophonist/conductor Igor Butman, who formed the band in 1999. They have played everywhere from Jazz at Lincoln Center to Carnegie Hall to major jazz festivals worldwide. The New York Times calls their performance “a show of great competence and fluency.” Butman pushes the boundaries of jazz mainstream with creative crossover projects. The big band has shared the stage with diverse artists from Wynton Marsalis to Mike Stern.
Special guest Allan Harris is a world-class singer, guitarist and songwriter. Perhaps best known for his interpretations of jazz standards, Allan’s smooth vocals and guitar-styling easily cross genres, from jazz to rock to blues. He is unquestionably one of the most versatile talents in contemporary jazz and blues music. Tony Bennett has called Allan “my favorite singer” and The New York Times’ Stephen Holden raves about “the protean talent that is Allan Harris.”
