"Big Chief of Congo Square"


Donald Harrison discusses his life and career focusing on what learned from early jazz greats in Chicago during 2011.

New Orleans jazz man Donald Harrison talks about his first alto saxophone punched by his father, and his big break with drummer Roy Haynes as a nineteen year old student at the Berklee College of Music leading to work with the great Art Blakey.

He explores the different treatments of the same music over time and individual styles and attitudes of the musicians that gave jazz its endless variation.

Harrison stresses the importance of studying the past for a truly greater understanding of the genre.
