Allan is a fine vocalist, though the banter between songs was content-free. I would have liked to have heard who the composer & lyricist are, perhaps the context that the song was written [during WWII ? For a particular musical ?] His quartet is fine, especially the pianist.
But the real disappointment.was several people around me texting during the performance. I complained to one of them and it lessened somewhat. The Amaroso Theater failed by not announcing to turn off cell phones before the performance, or are the rules different at that theater ? If so I won't be returning. I did complain to the head usher who came by right before the intermission ended to announce 'no cell phones during the performance,' but he did so so quickly and meekly that it proved ineffectual.
Quotes & Highlights
“Relaxed, romantic, swinging, and extremely easy on the ears — jazz vocalist Allan Harris’s tribute to Nat King Cole … got all the important things right.” —_Washington Post _
Nat King Cole left a permanent mark on the jazz world with his impeccable style and velvety smooth voice. Allan Harris, a world-class singer, guitarist and songwriter and a favorite of South Florida jazz audiences, brings his own special style and will captivate you with his interpretations to the Nat King Cole Songbook. Harris is a three-time winner of the New York Nightlife Award for "Outstanding Jazz Vocalist”, is a Gibson guitar artist and is Tony Bennett’s “favorite singer.” Pascal LeBoeuf on piano, Jake Goldbas on drums and Leon Boykins on bass join Miami saxophonist, Jesse Jones, Jr. in Harris’s jazz ensemble as they perform an unforgettable evening of great jazz standards.
