About Barry Harris & Larry McKenna:

87-year-old Barry Harris is truly one of the living legends of the jazz piano—and a great teacher of the bebop language. Dr. Harris is an exponent of the classic jazz style that was developed by Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, and other greats. His 40 plus years of excellence in the field of music will be on full display at the Shea Center.

One of the world’s finest jazz saxophone players, Larry McKenna (80) is known for his gorgeous, velvety tenor saxophone sound, the unparalleled beauty of his balladry, and his fluid, bebop-inspired improvisations. His national reputation as both a masterful jazz improviser in the be-bop and modern jazz styles of the 1950s and 1960s and an influential jazz educator is firmly established after five decades in his profession. Larry’s status as a jazz great has also been affirmed by his myriad fans and the jazz stars with whom he has played and recorded including Woody Herman, Clark Terry, Buddy DeFranco, Tony Bennett, Rosemary Clooney and Frank Sinatra.

To say that it is rare to witness such talent playing music together is an understatement. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience a part of Bebop history.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
