Keep Jazz A-Live-Streaming Presents Conversations with Curtis
May 5, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This week, we welcome jazz saxophone legend Donald Harrison, Jr.
Tune in every Tuesday night to hear outstanding performers discuss their passions and projects with our own JAZZ ROOM MC Curtis Davenport and you. Our interactive events are the perfect chance for you to engage with the artists who are usually up on the stage and who’ll be happy to take your questions.
New Orleans born saxophonist Donald Harrison, Jr. is a musician/composer who master musicians consider a master of every era of jazz, soul, funk, and a composer of orchestral classical music. Harrison honed his experience playing with Roy Haynes, Art Blakey, Lena Horne, McCoy Tyner, Miles Davis, The Notorious BIG, and more. In the HBO drama Treme, Emmy winning director David Simon created two characters to portray how Harrison innovated new styles of music.
Harrison is a long-time friend of JazzArts Charlotte, and this week, we speak to him about some of the interesting experiences he has had through his extensive career.
