Lafayette Harris, Jr.
Lafayette Harris’s accomplishments speak for themselves. Known as the “go to” pianist by other musicians and band leaders, in the last year alone, Lafayette has performed on Broadway with the THE COLOR PURPLE, toured Europe with Ernestine Anderson, played the wedding for the daughter of ABC “World News Tonight” host, Charlie Gibson and helped raise money for children with cancer in Columbus, OH. Alongside these have been Lafayette’s regular appearances at New York’s Blue Note and weekly open mic session that he hosts at the historic Lenox Lounge in Harlem, widely regarded as the “best vocal jam session” in the city by New York’s weekly listing guides. In between all this, Lafayette has managed to record two new albums in the last year � TRIO TALK, a jazz trio outing and a contemporary funk/fusion project, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.
