Acclaimed American vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Allan Harris is in Melbourne this week playing a  residency at Birds Basement. So highly regarded is Harris that the great Tony Bennet has proclaimed Allan to be one of his favourite singers.

Over the past 20 years, Harris has steadily developed his reputation as one of the finest vocalists of his era. Brooklyn-born and Harlem-based, he has forged his sterling credentials through his ten previous albums, covering a broad range of contexts, all netted together within the rich territory of the jazz tradition. In addition to his recordings, he has performed on a worldwide stage that has taken him to prestigious international festivals and halls in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, as well as the 2012 Olympics in London.

His latest album, Nobody’s Gonna Love You Better (Black Bar Jukebox Redux) will continue to build his legacy as another milestone in the extraordinary artistic aesthetic of Allan Harris.

Australian Musician editor Greg Phillips sat down with Allan Harris this week to discuss his career, guitars, his latest album and the future.

Allan’s remaining Birds Basement shows are October 28, 29 & 30.
Dinner show starts at 7:30pm (doors open at 6pm). Supper show starts at 10:00pm (doors open at 9:30pm). Tickets here
