Allan Harris is a jazz vocalist, producer, composer, guitarist, song-writer, actor, educator and three time winner of the New York Nightlife Award for "Outstanding Jazz Vocalist." A natural entertainer, his dynamic stage presence has made him a main-stay in concert halls, theaters, jazz clubs and music festivals around the world. Tony Bennett calls him "my favorite singer." He has been a guest performer with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, at Carnegie Hall, The Algonquin's Oak Room, with Country Music star Vince Gill and Stevie Wonder. He has performed for President Bill Clinton, Jessye Norman and Sophia Loren. Memories of his early career playing guitar and singing with country rock bands inspired Allan to create his 2006 song-cycle Cross That River, a stunning portrait of the American West. Cross That River, the musical, debuted at the famed O'Neill Theatre in July 2008 and was the recipient of the Chamber Music America Residency Grant. CNN's Show Biz Tonight referred to Harris as "One of the three best male jazz vocalists in the country." The New York Times' Stephen Holden called him "a protean talent."
