Derrick Harris Trio
Derrick Harris guitar, Adrian Knowles double bass, Pete Fairclough drums
This will be a relaxed, bluesy foot tapping Sunday afternoon at Inkwell Arts with guitarist Derrick Harris leads his own jazz trio. His guitar playing has been featured frequently on radio and television. The gig will feature music from Derrick’s trio CD “Once More For Luck”.
Adrian Knowles is a fine double bass player and a music teacher at GSL in Leeds. Pete Fairclough’s jazz pedigree is unquestioned – he has played at Seven Arts with the Tony Faulkner Big Band and bands like the Mike Westbrook Orchestra.
“Derrick Harris is an excellent jazz guitarist, inspired by Wes Montgomery and Grant Green but with a sound of his own. As an arranger-composer his tunes are quirky and full of subtle surprises, featuring
fresh melodies and original chord changes”.
Scott Yanow, author of The Jazz Singers, Bebop, Jazz On Film and Jazz On Record 1917-76
