The best kept secret in music


"Concert Review"

He was headlining a concert at a local jazz club, performing with some of the city's best jazz musicians. Every song had been written by Harris, and every piano solo was greeted with howls of approval from the packed house.

Even the rooftop room was worthy of a dreamlike evening. Scott Gertner's Sky Bar commands an impressive view of Houston's bristling skyline. As the orange glow of sunset settled on the skyscrapers, Dave Harris and Friends plowed into a smoky slice of jazz called Going, Going, Gone.

- Houston Chronicle

I started out w/ classical lessons at 6, discovered rock w/ the Doors when I was 11, and discovered jazz through my father's recordings of Thelonius Monk, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis and Gerry Mulligan as an early teen.

My influences are broad, ranging from the Beatles to Peter Gabriel; from Guillaume de Machaud to Erik Satie to Maurice Ravel to Lou Harrison; from Duke Ellington to Ornette Coleman to Wayne Shorter to Keith Jarrett; from early Celtic folk music to Emmylou Harris; from Turkish folk music to Antonio Carlos Jobim to Milton Nascimento.
