Artist/Band:Gene Harris Quartet
Name:Live In London
Cat No.:HCD-2001
Performed by:Gene Harris (piano)
Jim Mullen (guitar)
Andrew Cleyndert (bass)
Martin Drew (drums)
Description:Based on previously unreleased tapes provided by his widow Janie Harris, Live in London is also the only available recording of Gene Harris in action with his British quartet. This group performed together exclusively in the U.K., where hometown audience support and remarkable musicianship elevated their performances to match standards set by Harris's previous work.

Most of these tunes have never been recorded by Harris before and none have been previously recorded in quartet ensemble.

Recorded during one night at the celebrated Pizza Express Jazz Club, the six tracks on Live in London capture Harris at his peak. The results exceeded expectations: Harris clicked instantly with guitarist Jim Mullen (whose credits include Brian Auger, Vinegar Joe and Kokomo), bassist Andrew Cleyndert (Ray Bryant, Art Farmer, Lee Konitz, Kenny Wheeler) and drummer Martin Drew (Herb Ellis, Ella Fitzgerald, Joe Pass and Oscar Peterson).

From the bracing solo piano intro and brisk band entrance on "There Is No Greater Love" to the exuberant strut of the "Blues Closer," the home team plays as if its members had grown up with Harris back in Michigan: The electricity between them is palpable, each current inspiring one to lock harder onto the groove or dig deeper into the feel and feed that energy back to its sender for more.

Recorded live in concert in May 1996 at Pizza Express, London.
