MAY 1-Joe Harris is a jazz legend in the history of be-bop jazz. Providing the rhythm section for the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, and Miles Davis in the 1940’s and 50’s, Mr. Harris was a part of a new movement that changed the sound of jazz forever. On May 1, Joe Harris will share his stories and experiences, his archive of pictures and memorabilia with jazz fans and musicians, and demonstrate the technique that made jazz history.
Join Mr. Harris for an evening of conversation and great music on May 1st at 6:00 pm at 709 Penn Avenue Gallery, 709 Penn Avenue, Cultural District. Refreshments will be served.
