Over the past 20 years, Harlem man Allan Harris celebrates the release of his 11th album, Nobody’s Gonna Love You Better (Black Bar Jukebox Redux.)
Harris has steadily developed a reputation as one of the finest vocalists of his era. Brooklyn-born and Harlem-based, he has forged his sterling credentials through his ten previous albums, covering a broad range of contexts, all netted together within the rich territory of the jazz tradition. He has performed on a worldwide stage that has taken him to prestigious international festivals and halls in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, as well as the 2012 Olympics in London and has received the DownBeat Critic’s Poll Award for “Rising Star Vocalist.” The Miami Herald says that his voice and demeanor “project the warmth of Tony Bennett, the bite and rhythmic sense of Sinatra, and the sly elegance of Nat ‘King’ Cole.”
