Barry Harris Trio - Village Vanguard
October 06, 2019 - New York

Barry always had a nice dynamic attack and approach to the piano. He was quick to get hip to Bud Powell, devoted more time to that style than anyone else on the scene then. He took it another step. He had a lot of confidence, too. He was one of the few guys who would just wait for Charlie Parker to come to town and go up and sit in with him.

After majorly touring in Asia, including playing at Summer Sonic Festival in Japan, the band went on a hiatus, where each member focused on other musical projects.
