The Music

Quote Kevin Harris has a very special talent. His writing is interesting and challenging, with a sense of originality and commitment to quality. I so enjoy listening to and playing with Kevin. Makes me know that jazz is alive, well and in good hands... AND that new music can be great, with solid respect for what has come before, while strongly forging ahead into the future. Very exciting! Thank you Kevin.. Quote

—Terri Lyne Carrington

QuoteEclectic Harris: In his hometown, he is known to be an “dialectic” improviser, that is, he enjoys conversating through his music with the public while he creates on the white and black keys.Quote

Breathe

Steve Langone Trio

Steve Langone: Drums
Kevin Harris: Piano
Dave Zinno: Bass



"One of the most interactive new units in the grand tradition of the jazz piano trio”
- Bob Blumenthal

Breathe might be the artist exhorting himself to hit the pause button between sessions, long enough to draw a little attention to his own work, which happens to be stellar. Joined by Kevin Harris and Dave Zinno, Langone's trio is sublime, really tasty, as they tackle an exhilarating repertoire spanning Dylan, Shearing, Louis Armstrong and a few originals.
