Songs for Barry Harris w/ NEA Jazz Master Sheila Jordan, Harvie S, and Roni Ben-Hur
Sheila Jordan, Harvie S and Roni Ben-Hur will perform a special tribute to the late great pianist Barry Harris at Flushing Town Hall. In this special program, the band will perform jazz standards and many tunes that Harris played over his career. Jordan grew up in Detroit and knew Harris as a teenager; they remained good friends until the end of his fruitful life. Ben-Hur started out as Harris’ student and ended up playing in his band, recording some classic albums with him. Harvie S both played with the pianist and taught with him in summer programs at Manhattan School. This will be a moving tribute to one of jazz’s most important masters.
