“Harrell’s solos are richly melodic, clean and flowing.” – JazzTimes

Tom Harrell

Voted “Trumpeter of the Year of 2018 “by the Jazz Journalists Association (JJA), Tom Harrell is one of the most creative and dynamic jazz instrumentalists and composers of our time. While Harrell is a master of the jazz idiom, he constantly seeks new challenges and influences. His warm, burnished sound on the trumpet and the flugelhorn, and the unparalleled melodic, harmonic and rhythmic sophistication in his playing and writing, have earned Harrell his place as a jazz icon to aspiring musicians and devoted fans alike.

Allen’s “steamrollering sense of swing and his sewing of phrases and licks together with the kind of assurance once associated with Zoot Sims.” – Penguin Guide to Jazz

 Harry Allen with saxophone

Harry Allen’s been described as a throwback since his choice of material is jazz standards. If you like your jazz music played the way it was “meant” to be played: with confidence, straight-forward and without fussiness or frivolity, beautifully, and with the melody that the saxophone up front, then this is a concert not to be missed!
