David L. Harris at Ogden After Hours
/// February 9, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for an evening of modern jazz with trombone player, vocalist, composer, and arranger David L. Harris Jr.. Harris embodies the edge of modern jazz and the sultriness of blues. Every time he steps on stage, David takes his audience on the emotionally engaging journey of love and liberation, wrapped in a sound that embraces the groove, grit and swing of the past. Growing up in Baton Rouge, David L. found his fingers pressed against the sliding brace of the trombone at the age of sixteen and has never let go since. Self taught, David L. would spend seven hours a day practicing while allowing the sounds of legendary musicians like, Tyree Glenn, Joe “Tricky Sam” Nanton and Al Grey train him along the way. David L. went on to further his knowledge of music and fine tune his technique, by continuing his studies at Southern University, Louisiana State University, and the University of New Orleans. Continuing to let his love for music lead him, Nowadays, he can be found swinging his plunger mute gently against the bell of his Antoine Courtois trombone, while playing beside highly noted musicians at concerts and festivals all over the world.
