FRI AUG 5 | Loston Harris Trio
August 05, 2022 07:00 PM until August 05, 2022 09:30 PM
Loston Harris presents the Great American Songbook at its finest. He is a piano virtuoso who combines a percussive left hand with a fluid melodic touch and a suave vocal delivery. For more than a decade, Loston has headlined the legendary Bemelmans Bar located in The Carlyle in Manhattan’s storied Upper East Side. He has a legacy of hosting great cabaret and jazz greats from the likes of Bobby Short, Eartha Kitt, Elaine Stritch, John Pizzarelli, and the Modern Jazz Quartet (MJQ). Loston’s musical future began at a surreal pace. After meeting Harry Connick Jr. at the 1st Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition in Washington, D.C., Harry led Loston to study with his mentor, Ellis Marsalis, who encouraged him to switch instruments from drums to piano.
The rest, as they say, is history…
