“There’s no denying his playing is impressive, made even more so because it’s displayed so infrequently.” —JazzTimes

Acclaimed jazz pianist Lafayette Harris Jr. brings his formidable trio to Zinc for a splendid evening of jazz piano on Tuesday, April 18. He’s supported by Lonnie Plaxico on bass and Dwayne “Cook” Broadnax on drums.

Jazz pianist, arranger, and composer Lafayette Harris, Jr. is among the most respected session and touring musicians on the scene. He possesses an extreme rhythmic vitality coupled with considerable harmonic depth, displaying fine, elegant phrasing, a passionate flair, and extensive knowledge of the jazz tradition, classic pop repertoire, and an intimate familiarity with soul and funk. These qualities have made him a go-to pianist for dozens of musicians ranging from Max Roach (with whom he worked as pianist and arranger for seven years) to Ernestine Anderson, Roswell Rudd, Melba Moore, and Houston Person. Harris has released ten albums, including his newest: “Swingin’ Up In Harlem” (Savant 2023) with Lewis Nash and Peter Washington.
