Paul Harrison Band (DK/UK)
High musical quality and extroverted stage performance
It's the Paul Harrison Band brand. Earlier in 2019, the English clarinettist filled 60, and he continues with unswerving efficiency his dynamic style, where constant innovation blends with the familiar.
Everything is served from riveting up-tempo numbers to beautiful ballads in a close ensemble, tight arrangements and solo performances from the entire team.
The repertoire is broad and engaging, and traditional classics mix with many atypical tunes for the genre.
This is due to the great variety in the rhythmic styles of jazz: revival, swing, ragtime, traditional, Dixieland, New Orleans, spirituals, blues, gipsy etc.
In the Jazzteltet 2019, Paul Harrison presents a welcome revisitation of banjo player and singer Hans Reichstein and the English trumpet virtuoso Kevin Grenfell.
