Harp to rock Ilaro Court’s Jazz show
ILARO?COURT?will be alive with the sound of music when the Sagicor Christmas Jazz gets on the way on Sunday, December 8, with a stellar cast of musicians including the explosive saxophone player Everette Harp.
A blues, jazz and gospel saxophonist, Harp is considered one of smooth jazz’s greatest ambassadors.
This popular American sax man has strong roots in gospel and soul having grown up with a dad who was a Baptist minister.
Practicing the saxophone from the tender age of four, he says “playing the sax is like breathing to me, I have done it all my life”.
Harp majored in music at the University of North Texas and soon after moved to Los Angeles where he began his extensive studio and touring career playing with the likes of Anita Baker, Luther Vandross, Dionne Warwick, Neil Diamond, Yolanda Adams, George Duke and David Sanborne to name a few.
His most successful album In The Moment debuted at No.1 on Billboard’s contemporary Jazz chart and continues to be a favourite with jazz lovers.
With nine contemporary jazz albums under his belt, Harp is a regular on the Billboard Jazz charts and is described as an accomplished improviser often fusing funk and hip hop into his performances.
A writer, arranger, and producer, Harp is an audience thriller who impresses with his powerful, emotional performances and is looking forward to performing here.
Tickets for the show are now available in box offices. (PJ)
