LOSTON HARRIS RETURNS TO BEMELMANS BAR
NEW YORK CITY DEBUT OF
NEW RELEASE SWINGFULLY YOURS
***CD Release Party - Nov 12 - Birdland***
Loston Harris proudly returns to his residency at Bemelmans Bar at The Carlyle on October 22, 2013 with the New York City debut of his brand-new release Swingfully Yours (Magenta Label Group). The long awaited CD by the singer/songwriter features swinging arrangements of timeless standards from the Great American Songbook. George Gershwin, Harold Arlen and Sammy Cahn, to name a few, are all embraced. The CD was released September 10, 2013. The CD Release Party will be held at Birdland (NYC) on November 12, 2013.
The Loston Harris Trio brings a fresh and lively approach to the Great American classics at Bemelmans Bar and are hot off of last month's West Coast run at The Whisper Lounge in Los Angeles. Harris was featured on the September cover of Hot House jazz magazine, of which reviewer George Kanzler says, "Loston Harris is a rising young pianist and singer on the cabaret scene, sometimes seen as an heir-apparent of the late Bobby Short. His piano style is clean, bright and uncluttered, in the lineage of Nat 'King' Cole with suggestions of George Shearing's concision."
For the past 11 years, Harris has been headlining at New York City's prestigious Carlyle Hotel. In addition to sharing the stage with American Songbook aficionado Michael Feinstein at Jazz at Lincoln Center, he has also performed in concert with Grammy award-winning artists singer/pianist Diana Krall and rock musician John Mayer.
