Dizzy's Club

Allan Harris: A Tale of Two Kings

The Genius of Eddie Jefferson and the Elegance of Nat King Cole

With vocalist Allan Harris, drummer/cajon player Shirazette Tinnin, pianist Arcoiris Sandoval, and bassist Nimrod Speaks.

“…the warmth of Tony Bennett, the bite and rhythmic sense of Sinatra, and the sly elegance of Nat King Cole.” – The Miami Herald

“Although he’s best known for his buttery tributes to Nat “King” Cole and Billy Eckstine, [Allan] Harris ranks among the most dexterous singers around, and he proves fully up to the challenge” of “navigating the tricky, rapid-fire, street-smart wordplay of vocalese—an art form [Eddie] Jefferson is widely credited with creating.” – JazzTimes

The award-winning Allan Harris is a Brooklyn-born, Harlem-raised vocalist, guitarist, and composer with a powerful baritone voice and a huge stylistic range. In his return to Dizzy’s Club, he will pay tribute to two geniuses of jazz vocals: vocalese pioneer Eddie Jefferson and crooner Nat “King” Cole. By taking on both of these artists’ famous songbooks and vocal approaches, Harris will showcase—and perhaps combine—two very different sides of his immense talent in an impressive and entertaining performance.
