For this eveningʼs performance saxophonist, Donald Harrison will lead a supporting ensemble made up of students from Loyolaʼs jazz program in a concert of classic jazz standards and iconic original compositions.
Harrison grew up in a home environment saturated with the cityʼs traditional music of brass bands, parades, modern jazz, r&b, funk, classical, world ethnic, and dance music.
His connection to New Orleans roots were deepened by his father, a Big Chief in the African and Native American influenced culture of New Orleansʼ Black Mardi Gras Indians. The culture is an offshoot culture of Congo Square, one of the only known places in North America where Africans openly participated in their culture in the 1700ʼs and 1800ʼs.
He has performed with an illustrious list of distinguished musicians in Jazz, R & B, Funk, Classical and more : Art Blakey, Roy Haynes, Lena Horne, Ron Carter, Billy Cobham, Eddie Palmieri, Jennifer Holiday, Dr. John, Guruʼs Jazzmatazz, McCoy Tyner, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Miles Davis, Digable Planets, Notorious BIG, The Chicago Symphony Orchestra and The Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra.
For his critically-acclaimed album Indian Blues, (1991) Harrison created "Nouveau Swing,” a style of jazz that merges modern dance music like r&b, hip-hop, soul, rock, with Afro-New Orleans traditional music. The recording deepened Harrisonʼs commitment to maintaining the offshoot rituals, call and response chants, and drumming of Congo Square alive for the next generation.
