Corey Harris

Corey Harris's life and music embrace the black experience in all its dimensions. He burst onto the scene in 1995 with his debut recording “Between Midnight and Day,” an acclaimed exploration of acoustic, rural blues styles. At the time, few really grasped the scope and range of Harris's musical persona. He had solid blues credentials. After street-busking and taking small gigs wherever he could drive to from his home outside New Orleans, it quickly became clear that pigeonholing Harris as a blues musician was never going to work. A native of Denver, Colorado, Corey Harris fell in love with music at an early age, and made his own music with a toy guitar he received at the age of three

Corey Harris: Fulton Blues

Corey Harris: Zion Crossroads

Read "Zion Crossroads" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Di crocicchi, Corey Harris ne ha attraversati tanti. In nome della musica del diavolo è stato in Africa ad apprendere la lezione primordiale prima di suonare nei paraggi di New Orleans e registrare una manciata di album (Between Midnight and Day, Greens from the Garden) che hanno fatto impaurire e/o morire d’invidia i puristi del blues ...

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
