Review: For his latest session, world-renowned vocalist & guitarist Harris chose one of his jazz vocal heroes to pay homage to in conjunction with Eddie Jefferson’s centennial year, brilliant! Harris gave the tracks all a fresh sound: instead of imitating, he renovated Eddie’s music without losing the essence of them. In addition to the reinvigoration of the music, Mr. Harris chose an excellent cast of accompanists, including the gifted saxophonist, “Alto Madness” Richie Cole who recorded with Eddie
If You Like: Manhattan Transfer, Lambert Hendricks & Ross
