Fiona's Comments

21st Century Nature Boy is angsty, ornate, faster and less with the lingering sentiment. Apt but simple longing and romance take some beating. #evenifitsoundslikeloussierplayingyorke

About the Album

Volume 1 is the debut album from Canadian pianist extraordinaire, Stu Harrison. Along with Canadian jazz icons Neil Swainson and Terry Clarke, Harrison presents ten classic jazz standards, presented with modern and exciting arrangements. There is a certain implied importance to this album. It is apparent at first listen. It is not importance in terms of boastful accusation, but of thoughtful, meaningful collaboration and execution. Harrison, Toronto pianist and sideman to many live T.O. music projects including a recurring spot in The Justin Bacchus Collective, is finally releasing his first effort as a leader, Volume 1. This album is Harrison’s first foray into the Toronto Jazz scene under his own name, and together with Clarke and Swainson is revealing the collaborative efforts spanning Baby- Boomer to Gen X’er to reveal a vibrant take on the classic jazz trio.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
