Inside the Barry Harris Method (JazzTimes)

Dr. Barry Harris, at a recent appearance at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola in New York.

What a joy to learn at the feet of Dr. Barry Harris, 89, one of the original bebop piano masters. I visited his regular Tuesday night workshop in Manhattan recently to interview him and join about 50 other eager students in learning how this sage approaches the art of bebop.

Lee Konitz is 84 and is cooler than you. DownBeat is currently running my review of the alto sax legend and his “Enfants Terribles” (feat. Bill Frisell) as their lead story. http://bit.ly/RF1D2D
