A major alto-saxophonist ever since joining Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers in the early 1980s, the New Orleans-born Donald Harrison worked with Jack McDuff and Roy Haynes prior to Blakey, and afterwards he co-led a quintet with trumpeter Terence Blanchard for several years.
Since that time, Harrison has most frequently been heard as a leader (heading around 20 albums so far) although he also worked with Eddie Palmieri and in all-star groups including most notably The Cookers.
On his LiveStream of July 7, 2020, Donald Harris plays over a prerecorded rhythm section, performing three pieces including a boppish blues reminiscent of Charlie Parker and “Watermelon Man,” displaying a beautiful tone, superior technique, and creative ideas while swinging throughout.
