Join David L. Harris as he pays a “Halliday” tribute to Nat King Cole at Preservation Hall.

Trombone player, vocalist, composer and arranger David L. Harris Jr. embodies the edge of modern jazz and the sultriness of blues. Every time he steps on stage, David takes us on the emotionally engaging journey of love and liberation, wrapped in a sound that embraces the groove, grit and swing of the past.
 

 

Growing up in a neighborhood called Scotlandville, in Baton Rouge, La, David L. found his fingers pressed against the sliding brace of the trombone at the age of sixteen and has never let go since. Music lovers have stepped and grooved to the sound of his trombone at some of the liveliest jazz festivals in the world, like The Newport Jazz Festival, The Montreal Jazz Festival, and The New Orleans & Heritage Jazz Festival .

David L. has graced legendary concert halls, such as the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, NY, The Lincoln Center in New York, NY, and The L'Olympia Music Hall in Paris, France; and has played beside some of the most astonishingly talented bands and vocalist like Dee Dee Bridgewater, Wynton Marsalis, Shannon Powell, Aaron Neville, Delfeayo Marsalis, Dr. Michael White, and The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra. "From my trombone, I speak of all that my ancestors have spoken and all that is to come.”

The Salon Series at 726 St. Peter is an expansion of Preservation Hall’s mission to Protect, Preserve, and Perpetuate through explorations of music, visual art, film, dance, digital content, and collaboration featuring Artists from both our resident musical collective as well as regional and visiting artists from all genres and disciplines.  As a venue and platform for sustaining traditions and fostering community from its inception, #Salon726 presentations offer a unique environment for Creators to celebrate the past, present, and future with new presentations that that cross discipline, geography, and perspective.
