This Thursday, May 10, The Jazz Gallery is pleased to continue our series of Thursday night shows at the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning in Queens with a solo set by pianist Sam Harris. Juxtaposing a sense of haunting lyricism with striking harmonic angularities, Harris has become one of the most sought-after collaborator in New York, working with the likes of Ambrose Akinmusire, Melissa Aldana, and Ben van Gelder, to name a few. As a consummate accompanist, Harris has had relatively few opportunities to stretch out in a solo format, which makes this concert a rare treat. Before heading out to Queens for the show, check out Harris’s shape-shifting solo from Ambrose Akinmusire’s 2017 live record, A Rift in Decorum (Blue Note).
The Jazz Gallery presents pianist Sam Harris at the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning on Thursday, May 10, 2018. One set at 8 P.M. $10 general admission. Purchase tickets here.
