Donald Harrison and Congo Square Nation

Donald Harrison

With his genre-bending new album "Quantum Leap", saxophonist/composer Donald Harrison establishes himself as a master of every dimension of the jazz trajectory, from early jazz to Bebop, and beyond. That shouldn't be a surprise - Harrison is uniquely qualified to represent the link between traditional and cutting-edge jazz.

Born in New Orleans in 1960, he was raised in the African-influenced Mardi Gras Indians' culture of brass bands, parades and rituals by his father, a Big Chief of four Indian tribes; then, just out of music school, he joined Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. Always innovative, Harrison combined jazz and Mardi Gras Indians' traditional music on his critically-acclaimed 1993 album, "Indian Blues".

Now, as Big Chief of the Congo Square Nation, Donald Harrison summons the potency of his Indian heritage and his formidable experience in contemporary jazz to reconfigure musical boundaries. His gifted ensemble follows him over the edge, and back.
