Biography

One of the most accessible of all jazz pianists, Gene Harris' soulful style (influenced by Oscar Peterson and containing the blues-iness of a Junior Mance) was immediately likable and predictably excellent. After playing in an Army band (1951-1954), he formed a trio with bassist Andy Simpkins and drummer Bill Dowdy which was, by 1956, known as the Three Sounds. The group was quite popular, ...

How can you miss with this great jazz combination ~ Ron Eschete (guitar) ~ Luther Hughes (bass) ~ Paul Humphrey (drums) ~ and the man himself tickling the ivories, Mr. Gene Harris ~ make up THE GENE HARRIS QUARTET.
Featuring some old and some new ~ "BYE BYE BLUES", a classic tune from the early days ~ "BLUES IN HOSS' FLAT", big number from the Count Basie era ~ "NICE 'N' EASY", Alan & Marilyn Bergman song recorded so matter of fact by Frank Sinatra, with a new arrangement giving us another side to this jazz favorite by Gene and his associates ~ "CHILDREN OF SANCHEZ", composed for the film by Chuck Mangione and hand picked by Gene with this haunting and original arrangement for piano and guitar, takes on several tempo changes ~ "BLUES FOR BASIE" and "OLD FUNKY GENE'S", written by Harris gives the listener a wild ride, opening with soulful melodies, counter-balancing on through jazz, tip-toeing in gospel and closing with hard-pounding blues ~ what a ride that was...can we do it again?
Why not try other title on Concord Jazz featuring Gene Harris ~ "Alley Cats" (CCD-4859-2) ~ "Listen Here" (CCD-4385) ~ "It's The Real Soul" (CCD-4692) ~ "In His Hands" (CCD-4758-2).
Total Time: 57:25 on 9 Tracks...Concord Jazz CCD 4509...(1994)

I cannot believe I am the first to review this amazing jazz CD. Again Gene Harris is super. The opening tune "Willow Weep for Me" is handled sooooo well. Gene Harris is a super jazz piano man and has a terrific ensemble and I mean a group. They are solid. A nice spin with Nice 'N Easy will satisfy many. This is a fine album.

I have a lot of Gene Harris CD's but for some reason I missed this one, boy did I miss. This CD is a really funky piece of work by Gene and his crew, very bluesy and lots of gutts. Don't know why the tunes on this CD don't get more airplay, but they sure are good. It is a nice addition to other CD's like his London gigs. Adds one more dimension to this incredibly talented musician.

These are good tunes for cooking, background music for dinner, or unwinding after a long day at work. Mood music.
