Album Review

Gene Harris was a very consistent pianist, always infusing the standards and ballads that he interpreted with soul and the blues feeling. On this live set (recorded in Pittsburgh), Harris and his regular quartet of the period (with guitarist Ron Eschete, bassist Luther Hughes, and drummer Paul Humphrey) perform typically soulful versions of "Summertime," "You Don't Know Me," "Lady Be Good" (taken at a relaxed tempo), and "That's All." Veteran tenor saxophonist and flutist Frank Wess is featured on four other numbers: two of his originals plus "Straight No Chaser" and "My Funny Valentine." The music overall is predictably excellent, for all of Harris' Concord recordings are easily recommended.

Customer Reviews

Real Soul!

I was fortunate enough to see Gene Harris in Seattle, once with Ray Brown and then with his Quintet. Both times it was a treat! He was an exceptional player, his ability to take a song and infuse it with gospel, blues and swing was uncanny. This live album is a great way to experience him live since he is no longer with us. RIP Gene! Peace and Love Guy Piano PS If you enjoy his version of Summertime here check out his version on Ray Brown"s album BamBamBam, WOW!
