Ric Harris

Ric Harris has made a few changes to The Harris Group since last year. In his 2012 review, John Book hoped the “lineup will continue for awhile”, and the new CD, Errands, not only relies on two of them, vibraphonist Micah Rutschman and drummer Tom Haugen, but also adds a new bass player, Mason Cormie, who plays both electric and acoustic bass. The guests on this release, violinist Daniela Bisenius and flutist Jack Scott, help to define the tracks on which they appear. Finally, all of the compositions are originals by Harris that offer an aural picture of the world from places as far apart as the coast of South Carolina and the streets of Prague.

”A dandy guitarist that finds his sweet spot somewhere between 60s Bluenote and fusion, with a soupcon of Wes thrown in for good measure, Harris and crew deliver a solid listening date that hovers above the background music din.” Chris Spector, midwestrecord.com

“Errands is an urbane and stylish work bristling With originality. It demonstrates a rare and successful combination of accessibility and ingenuity, and is a testament to Harris' proficiency as a composer, improviser and bandleader.” Hrayr Atttarian, allaboutjazz.com
