Bruce Harris

Bruce Harris' affinity for Jazz music began as a child listening to his grandfather play the alto sax in his family's south Bronx apartment. After viewing Spike Lee's Mo' Better Blues, Bruce's intrigue with the trumpet grew and his relationship with his instrument has been star-crossed since.

The influences of Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Clifford brown, and Dizzy Gillespie weighed heavily as Bruce learned the fundamentals of jazz. As a junior in high school, Bruce was honored to perform in the “Essentially Ellington”jazz band competition sharing the stage with his friend and mentor, Wynton Marsalis. Bruce fortified his studies by training his ear on the piano and by graduation he had been selected to join the National Grammy High School Jazz Band.
