Mandorla Music Presents Kevin Harris & Steve Langone
July 11, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 8:30 pm$15
Kevin Harris & Steve Langone Saturday July 11, 8pm $12 in advance here (https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1668545) , $15 at the door Third Life Studio, 33 Union Square, Somerville Kevin & Steve played in our series at The Green Room last year, and it was an incredible evening.
Over the course of the evening, a warm, playful, and intricate musical conversation unfolded between these two deeply connected musicians. They covered a lot of ground, from highly personal takes on standards by Monk and Charlie Parker to clearly in-the-moment creations. Couldn’t be happier to have them back!
Reared on gospel, schooled in Latin rhythms, and with an enduring love for Monk & Bach, Kevin Harris is an exciting pianist and composer. No less an authority than Grammy-nominated critics’ favorite pianist Fred Hersch says,”Kevin Harris plays and writes with flair and real soul.” He’s a fixture in New York clubs, and his touring in recent years has taken him to South America, Europe and China.
Drummer Steve Langone has been a mainstay of the area scene for more than 20 years: if there’s a jazz show in town on any given night, there are decent odds that it’s Steve on the drums. Steve’s “understated, multi-faceted, driving approach to percussion, tinted a bit with some Latin rhythms” (Dan McClenaghan, AllAboutJazz.com) has earned him an incredible resume and reputation.
