Allan Harris Quartet
Feat. Helen Sung
The musical odyssey of Allan Harris visits a wide range of influences, including swinging jazz, rich R&B, sumptuous balladry, wailing rock, rumbling blues and even a playful touch of Brazilian music. With a deeply resonant baritone/tenor voice that is soulful, richly expressive and flawless in both intonation and phrasing, Harris displays a total command and fluency while on stage. Helen Sung, one of the most in-demand jazz pianists, has taken part in various stage and studio projects with a range of artists, including such luminaries as Clark Terry, Wayne Shorter, Wynton Marsalis, Steve Turre, and MacArthur Fellow Regina Carter. See the Allan Harris Quartet feat. Allan Harris, guitar and vocals, Helen Sung, piano, Nimrod Speaks, bass, and Shirazette Tinnin, drums at the Jazz Forum!

Chris and Dan Brubeck have been making music together practically all their lives.

With Dan and Chris as the foundation, guitarist Mike DeMicco and pianist Chuck Lamb, complete this dynamic quartet. They perform at concert series, colleges, and jazz festivals across North America and Europe including the Newport, Detroit, Montreal, Playboy/Hollywood Bowl, and Monterey Jazz Festivals.
