With Donald Harrison, saxophone; Santiago Bosch, piano; Osmar Okuma, bass; and Darryl Staves, drums
Alto saxophonist Donald Harrison is a New Orleans-born traditionalist, a modern jazz trendsetter, a former member of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, a nurturer of young talent, a composer, and a bandleader. A kind of Crescent City Renaissance man, Harrison has performed with numerous jazz legends, including Dr. John, Digable Planets, Lena Horne, and Miles Davis. His most recent recordings are This Is Jazz: Live at the Blue Note with Billy Cobham and Ron Carter, and New Orleans Gumbo with Dr. John.
An artist in residence at Tulane University and a Berklee alumnus, Harrison will be performing at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola with handpicked musicians from Berklee as part of its Masters on the Road program, which features the music of a guest master musician as the focus of an ensemble class.
