04|20|17City Pages Best Jazz Artist 2017
Very honored to be named 2017 Twin Cities Best Jazz Artist by the City Pages who said, "In the 12 years since he first moved to Minnesota from southern Illinois, this remarkably fluid guitarist has positioned himself at the center of the Twin Cities jazz world. If your venue has a stage where jazz musicians gather, Harris has performed his fleet-fingered thing there. Whether playing alongside the McKnight-winning Atlantis Quartet or fronting his own Zacc Harris Group, Harris makes his mark, incorporating lessons from the greats (including Wes Montgomery, Pat Metheny, and John McLaughlin) into his own forward-looking style. Most recently, he’s branched out even further to assay jazz interpretations of classic folk and pop with his American Reverie project."
03|23|17Zacc Harris' AMERICAN REVERIE out May 19, 2017
With American Reverie, Harris sets out to explore songs that evoke the nostalgia of an America gone by, with modern jazz inflected interpretations of classic folk songs like Shenandoah and the Tennessee Waltz, along with music by Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, The Ronettes, Woody Guthrie and more. Joined by bassist Matt Peterson and drummer Lars-Erik Larson, Zacc Harris' American Reverie brings the past and present together.
Out on Shifting Paradigm Records on May 19, 2017 with release shows set for Friday, May 19 at the JAZZ ESTATE in Milwaukee, and Saturday, May 20 at the HOOK AND LADDER in Minneapolis.
