Harris is the quintessential jazz pianist. Like fellow Detroit native Tommy Flanagan, he can make himself at home in all kinds of settings, and he’s never wanted for work as a sideman. He’s worked with a laundry list of greats—Donald Byrd, Thad Jones, Dexter Gordon, Max Roach, Sonny Stitt, Julian “Cannonball” Adderley, Lee Morgan, Coleman Hawkins—and always brings a nicely tart post-Bud Powell flavor to whatever he touches. And Vonski—well, if you live in Chicago and haven’t seen this man play, you can’t really call yourself a jazz fan.
The quartet, which features Stewart Miller on bass and Charles Heath on drums, plays at 7 PM.
