Bruce Harris Sextet @ Minton’s, 11/6/2014

Trumpeter Bruce Harris takes Minton’s bandstand for the first time for a residency in November. Joined by his top notch bop sextet and influenced by Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Clifford Brown, and Dizzy Gillespie, Harris is currently a member of The Count Basie Orchestra and was hand picked by Wynton Marsalis to be second trumpet in the Tony Award winning Broadway musical, “After Midnight”. His celebrated Fats Navarro Tribute at Jazz at Lincoln Center brought attention to the under recognized giant of bebop and by all accounts Harris is a rising star who is destined for greatness.
