Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Allan Harris

The 2004 New York Nightlife Award Winner For 'Outstanding Male Jazz Vocalist” 10/15/2007 2:00:53 PM - Amidst a serious shortage of great male jazz singers, Allan Harris is a blessing. With a rich velvety voice and a dynamic stage manner, Harris’ voice and demeanor project the warmth of Tony Bennett, the bite and rhythmic sense of Sinatra, and the sly elegance of Nat ‘King' Cole.” Delivering a repertoire of familiar and beloved standards, Harris’ romantically appealing voice reaches out with the heartbreaking depth that caresses a song, giving each it’s fullest respect by combining the best of the past with his unique gifts to create something fresh and distinctive. Besides having total vocal control, Harris is also a superb musician with a natural ear, and the ability to accompany himself on the guitar while retaining his hallmark pinpoint vocal accuracy and incredibly clear diction without affectation. Now, with his new project, “Cross That River,” Allan Harris displays his gift for song writing and story telling. “Cross That River” is the first recording in what will be a trilogy telling the amazing story of the Black West. With this new project, Harris shows with conviction, that not only does he have something to bring to the world of jazz, but that he is one of the leading male singer/songwriters of his generation....
