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.
