Jazz en Plein Air: Lafayette Harris, Jr.

Lafayette Harris, Jr.

We are proud to present the respected pianist Lafayette Harris Jr. and his quartet for the second presentation of this summer’s Jazz en Plein Air series.

Considered the “pianist’s pianist” by many musicians and fans, Harris will be celebrating the release of Hangin’ with the Big Boys, due out this spring. Harris also released Bend to the Light, featuring Lonnie Plaxico and Willie Jones III, which received many positive reviews and went to number twenty five on the jazz charts.  

In his career Harris continues to perform with the Duke Ellington Legacy Orchestra and with Houston Person. He is featured on the October 2014 release by Mr. Person, The Melody Lingers On. On it is his original composition “You Can’t Lose With the Blues”, which continues to get regular airplay.

Our jazz curator, Richard Siegler, is excited to present a major influence on the NYC jazz scene and a regular on the European jazz festival circuit.  Richie suggests you arrive early, as this one will be a sell out!

The Golden Pear Cafe will be serving food and drink specials, so come socialize, soak in the scenery, and have a glass of wine, to the sounds of summer.

Table Seating is reserved for Golden Pear Cafe patrons so guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets to enjoy the live music from the terrace and the Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley Foundation Event Lawn.
