Allan Harris: The Genius of Eddie Jefferson

Award winning jazz vocalist Allan Harris pays tribute to the 100 year legacy of the Father of rap and vocalese, Eddie Jefferson.

"In my wildest dreams I never imagined I'd tackle Eddie Jefferson's material," he admits. "But once I started to sit down with his material and delve into what he was singing, it blew all of my stereotypes and prejudices out the window. How wrong I had been over the years to not give this incredible genius credit."

JazzTimes "No question that navigating the tricky, rapid-fire, street-smart word play of vocalese...is a daunting endeavor. But although he is known for his buttery tributes to Nat 'King' Cole and Billy Eckstine, Harris ranks among the most dexterous singers around, and proves fully up to the challenge.

MusicalMemoirs.com "If you love the legacy of Eddie Jefferson, you will enjoy this smooth interpretation of his genius works by the very talented Allan Harris."

Jazz Weekly "Honey toned Allan Harris keeps it hip and bopping on this tribute to vocalese master Eddie Jefferson."
