Personnel: Bill Harris gHank Jones p, celeste. The full colored natural sound of Harriss unamplified Spanish guitar is a rare and interesting pleasure. In the words of Nat Hentoff, the blues-soul of Harris courses richly through everything he plays. On his second album for the label, The Harris Touch, Bill was backed by a conventional Bakers Dozen - Bill Harris - Jazz Guitar section and a bongo player. The session featured the excellent piano work of Hank Jones, with three of the tunes vehicles to showcase of Harriss electric guitar.
The fourth album on this set is also a solo recital, recorded Bakers Dozen - Bill Harris - Jazz Guitar a Bill Harris concert in Washington in Harris plays with engaging easiness in a live program which mainly includes material from the other three albums, demonstrating his abilities as an improviser of lovely, rhythmically resilient variations.
Down Beat magazine defined his style as a combination of beauty, lyricism, charm and solid strength. This collection of performances is both a masterpiece of guitar versatility and a master class in improvisation. Add to cart. Add to wishlist. No customer reviews yet.
