About Marilyn Harris
Recently described by L.A. Jazz Scenes Scott Yanow as “most impressive", singer-pianist-songwriter Marilyn Harris boasts an enviable jazz pedigree. After studying composition with Hale Smith at UConn and film scoring with Ray Wright and Manny Albam at Eastman School of Music, Marilyn worked extensively with jazz arranger Gil Evans and studied piano with Richard Tee and Rodgers Grant. She's composed and produced music for film and television, radio drama, audiobooks, advertising and theater, and her original jazz songs have been recorded by Anne Marie Moss, Jackie Paris and Diane Hubka. Marilyn's first CD release, BETWEEN THE LINES, featured Steve Rodby, Georg Wadenius, Mark Walker, Orbert Davis, Bobby Lewis, Steve Eisen and Sinatra alumni Mike Smith, Ron Kolber and Ron Friedman. Following years as a working studio singer, pianist and arranger, she's emerged with her first purely-jazz outing: FUTURE STREET: 12 tracks of sassy, hip words and sleek, original music featuring instrumental solos by Wayne Bergeron, Pete Christlieb, Dan Higgins, Bob Leatherbarrow, Bill Liston, Warren Luening, Andy Martin, Dave Carpenter, a vocal duet with Mark Winkler, and liner notes by jazz songwriting legend Bob Dorough.
