ALLAN HARRIS
Celebrating
Kate’s Soulfood
Join Allan Harris and several of his favorite musicians: Shirazette Tinnin on drums; Arcoiris Sandoval on keyboards; Marty Kenney on bass; Grégoire Maret on harmonica; Jhair Sala on percussion and Bruce Harris on trumpet as they celebrate Allan’s latest record Kate’s Soulfood virtually on Saturday, Feb 27 at 2PM EST LIVE with a 4 camera shoot and hi def audio.
Showcasing his brisk baritone and deft songwriting ability, Harris’ fourteenth release as a leader paints a vivid portrait of his vibrant neighborhood of Harlem that draws heavily from a deep well of childhood memories. “As a child, the rhythmic rocking of the subway was music to my ears. Every Sunday I took a magical ride along those tracks from Brooklyn to Harlem, which became my island of refuge,” he says. Like his ancestors who emigrated there during the Harlem Renaissance, Harris saw Harlem as a place of opportunity, belonging, and most importantly, love. “The people that enveloped me with their love and teaching placed an armor of music, literature and history around my underdeveloped mind.” Kate’s Soulfood is the outcome of their heartfelt efforts.
“Run Through America” which was released as a single in August in response to the unjust police killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, the song is a modern-day protest anthem with a call to action: to never forget. It will be part of the live performance and so fitting to be part of Kate’s Soulfood, a place where the civil rights movement boomed in the 1960s – something Harris saw up close from his counter seat at his Aunt Kate’s Home Cooking luncheonette.

The Carr Center Presents
Lisa Fischer and Louis Cato
“dUOS & dUETS” FREE Concert
Streaming LIVE Worldwide
January 23, 2021
7:30PM EST
on JazzCorner’s Facebook Page
JazzCorner™ is pleased to continue our partnership with The Carr Center with the fourth installment of “dUOS and dUETS” streaming LIVE for FREE with the extraordinary vocalist Lisa Fischer with multi-instrumentalist Louis Cato on JazzCorner’s Facebook page on Saturday, January 23 starting at 7:30PM ET. This popular virtual performance in high def audio and a multi-camera shoot is curated by The Carr Center’s Artistic Director, 2021 NEA Jazz Master Terri Lyne Carrington, and pairs together some of the best performing artists, who are at the very top of their game, and presents them in ways you have never seen before.
Carr Center President, Oliver Ragsdale Jr. said: “Our dUOS & dUETS series has more than delivered on every promise we’ve made. It has been equal parts exciting, ground-breaking, excellent music. We can’t wait to show the world this next installment.”
While this concert is FREE and can be viewed worldwide, we ask to please register here.

“Lisa Fischer in concert is addictive, singing soul, jazz, rock, gospel, pop, folk and classical with equal facility and authority. She often mixes styles in the same song, sometimes in the same vocal line.”
After four decades of featured background singing with icons like Luther Vandross, The Rolling Stones, Chaka Khan, Tina Turner, and Nine Inch Nails, Lisa Fischer takes center stage with her own humble, heartfelt vocals. The 2013 “Best Documentary Oscar” award winning film “Twenty Feet from Stardom” altered the course of Lisa’s musical journey, telling her story, with clips of her legendary duets with Sting or with Mick Jagger on “Gimme Shelter.” It left audiences eager to see and hear more, so Lisa took the chance to set out on her own reinventing classic songs with her co-conspirators JC Maillard and Grand Baton. Their organic fusion of Caribbean psychedelic soul and jazzy progressive rock ignited Lisa’s flexibility and freedom of expression, awakening her lifelong desire to make music that heals but still rocks the house.
“Fischer can sing soul, jazz, rock, gospel, pop, folk and classical with equal facility and authority. She often mixes styles in the same song, sometimes in the same vocal line.”
While Lisa’s range is legendary, her greatest gift is the ability to connect, to reach the hearts of her listeners. She emerged from New York’s fervent studio scene in the early 1980s, sang for two decades with legendary vocalist Luther Vandross, and released “So Intense,” earning her first Grammy® for “Best R&B Performance” for “How Can I Ease The Pain.” She joined The Rolling Stones for their 1989 “Steel Wheels” tour, and continued to grace their stage for the next 26 years. Lisa’s passion for constant growth and experimentation with different styles invited recent collaborations with jazz pianist Taylor Eigsti, Sting, Bruce Springsteen, Michael McDonald, Talib Kweli, Billy Childs and YoYo Ma, the Metropole Orkest, and the list goes on and on. With spiritual truth-telling as her compass and loving kindness as her guide, Lisa Fischer continues her creative journey…destination unknown.
