Album Review

Loston Harris' debut makes it easy to compare him to early Harry Connick, Jr. Harris plays piano in a likable style that is swing-based but sometimes boppish; he takes four vocals that sound a bit like Connick, performs an Ellis Marsalis piece ("Swinging at the Haven") and even thanks Ellis and Wynton Marsalis and Marcus Roberts, among others, in the acknowledgements. Harris has stronger technique than Connick (his playing on "Easy Listening Blues" is a good example) and Oscar Peterson is one of his influences. His vocals are unassuming, straightforward and warm. Although no innovations are heard and Loston Harris is in the early stages of forming his own sound, overall this trio date (with bassist David Grossman, drummer Clarence Penn and, on three numbers, Mark Shim guesting on tenor) is an enjoyable set of swinging music. The highlights include "Moonlight in Vermont" (which has a groove reminiscent of the Ahmad Jamal Trio), "Do Nothin' Till You Hear from Me," "Comes Love" and "Easy Listening Blues."

Customer Reviews

Dinner with a soulful twist

Listening to Loston on this CD takes one back to a place like the Carlyle in NYC, sitting in Bemmelman's Bar, lost in the murals on the walll, the sound of the city, and the soulful trio playing in the centre, featuring Loston Harris. More than just the standard jazz trio, the group has a tight sound, an in intuitive sense of timing, and a sheer joy in playing that shines through. There are other recordings of Lofton, later than this, that begin to showcase a smoother, more original sound - but this is a great introduction to an artist that jazz afficionados should pay attention too as his career develops.

Amazing

I grew up listening to this album every week, when my mom would play it while making dinner. Loston Harris' piano playing and beautiful singing make this a must listen

a modern old master

a lot of young cats want to swing like fathers. not many succeed - Jamie Callum comes close. Loston nails it. I've been listening to this work for several years. it only gets better. the arrangements are tight and understated. Loston's voice, the phrasing in particular, is relaxed, natural and still captivating. most of all, theses are very modern and enjoyable renderings of an excellent selection of lasting standards.

Biography

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '90s

Loston Harris' recorded debut as a leader, Comes Love (N2K) in 1998, cast him in the role of a traditionalist who played expert modern swing piano (with touches of Oscar Peterson, Ahmad Jamal and Red Garland) and took a few cheerful vocals (including on "Close Your Eyes" and "Comes Love"). A subtle improviser, Harris (heard with a trio/quartet) was reshaping the past and sounding quite creative within the older style. He actually had started seriously playing piano fairly late. Harris had some piano...
