LOSTON HARRIS TRIO - BRYANT PARK - DEC 3 - FREE
(Published: December 01, 2013)

LOSTON HARRIS TRIO
PERFORMS AT BRYANT PARK TREE LIGHTING
DECEMBER 3 - TUESDAY
JOINS ALL-STAR LINEUP OF PERFORMERS

Celebrate and Give Back at the Tree Lighting Show
Featuring Loston Harris

The Loston Harris Trio will be featured at this year's Bryant Park Tree Lighting Show, which will present an array of personalities, musicians, and excitement. Throughout the evening, you can enjoy music performances by the Loston Harris Trio, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Carly Rose Sonenclar of The X Factor, Young People's Chorus, and NY Pops Brass Quintet. There will also be an appearance by New York Yankees legend Mariano Rivera, and a lineup of stellar skaters including Johnny Weir and the synchronized skating team The Haydenettes. Be sure to arrive early - as you wander the Holiday Shops at Winter Village, you'll discover even more musical surprises!

This year's tree lighting brings a call to action for visitors to the Bank of America Winter Village to give back. The 50 foot Norway Spruce tree comes from Newburgh in Orange County, New York. This massive green beauty spans 25 feet at its base. That's about the length of 3 of the park's ping pong tables placed end to end! And the height equals about 5 cars stacked on top of each other.

The Tree Lighting Show will also kick off Hunger Awareness Week at Winter Village. Bank of America is making your regular activities even more meaningful by connecting them with donations to the Food Bank for New York City. With Skate-to-Donate and Dine-to-Donate programs kicking off December 3, Bank of America will match minutes skated at the The Rink and desserts ordered at Celsius with contributions to fighting hunger in NYC.

LOSTON HARRIS - "SWINGFULLY YOURS"
The long awaited release, Swingfully Yours (Magenta Label Group), 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.

Harris was featured on the September 2013 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."

In addition to sharing the stage with Great 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. Harris' piano playing has been described as "percussive" and "incredibly fluid" and his vocals noted as "suave".

Loston Harris Performance Schedule:
Dec. 3 - Bryant Park Tree Lighting - 5pm
Now thru Dec. 31: Bemelmans Bar at The Carlyle
Tues - Thur 9:30pm - 12:30am, Fri-Sat 9:30pm-1:00am
