Thomas Kimmerle presents JAZZ IN CONCERT: Harry Allen & Martin Sasse
Harry Allen – Tenor Saxophone
Martin Sasse – Grand Piano
Canadian Journalist and Jazz Writer Gene Lees wrote:
“Stan Getz was once asked his idea of the perfect tenor saxophone soloist. His answer was, ‘My technique, Al Cohn’s ideas, and Zoot’s time.’ The fulfillment of that ideal may well be embodied in… Harry Allen.”
Harry Allen is a world-renowned saxophone player. His Engagements at many Jazz Festivals around the world and in countless Jazz Clubs speak for themselves.
The list of personalities he has worked with is also more than remarkable.
Here are names such as Ray Brown, Hank Jones, Frank Wess, Scott Hamilton, Bucky Pizzarelli, Jeff Hamilton, Terry Gibbs, Warren Vache, Kenny Barron, Larry Goldings, Al Foster and Tony Bennet.
