Performance - Lezlie Harrison Sings from the Great American Soulbook 2017

From: Smoke Jazz & Supper Club

Lezlie Harrison [voice]   Ben Paterson [b3 organ]   Saul Rubin [guitar]   Vince Ector [drums]

Over the last several years Lezlie Harrison’s burnished, soulful alto and striking beauty and distinctive blend of jazz, classic 70’s soul, and original music has become a fixture on the New York jazz scene. Lezlie draws upon the deepest foundations of her musical orientation:  the soul music that surrounded her during formative years in Harlem, the gospel music she sang as a child in her grandfather’s Methodist church in North Carolina. The Great American Soul Book will feature songs written by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Bob Dylan. Jazz standards will preside alongside popular songs laced with gospel infusion and ballads that morph into funk excursions all anchored by the organ trio. Expect some appearances by some very special guests, as well.
