Bassist Bernard Harris will headline a concert of "inspirational smooth jazz" at 7:30 p.m., Friday, October 16 at the Hilton Regency Conference Center, 400 Regency Park Drive in O'Fallon, IL.
Citing influences such as Larry Graham, Stanley Clarke, and Louis Johnson of The Brothers Johnson, Harris is a left-hander who plays in a "lead bass" style that also invites comparison to latter-day Miles Davis sideman Joseph "Foley" McCreary. You can see and hear Harris playing his version of "Amazing Grace" in the embedded video window below.
Tickets for Harris' concert are $25 for general admission, and are on sale now via Metrotix.
