Pianist Barry Harris (1929) is one of bepop's last living legends. His style is compared to that of Bud Powell while at the same time, he is praised for his idiosyncratic interpretations of Thelonious Monk. Having created a furore on the jazz scene in Detroit, in 1960 Harris moved to New York where for a short time he was a member of the Cannonball Adderley Quintet. He recorded albums with greats like Dexter Gordon, Illinois Jacquet and Hank Mobley and had an on-off working relationship with Coleman Hawkins for ten years. In the 1970s, Harris collaborated on two of Sonny Stitt's best albums: Tune Up and Constellation. Currently, he is focusing on teaching but now and again he delights his fans with a live performance. Moreover, last year he released the CD Live in Rennes. Harris is bringing drummer Leroy Williams and bassist Ray Drummond with him to Rotterdam this summer.
