Harry became the youngest ever Jazz Pianist to lead his own trio aboard the Queen Mary 2 ocean liner, touring the world – twice! He gained his BMUS (HONS) Jazz Piano (Performance) in 2015. Harry came to the attention of famous UK Drummer/Bandleader Clark Tracey in his final year at Birmingham and joined Clark’s prestigious, young Quintet playing the jazz circuit and many festivals in the UK and Europe, for three years. During this time he recorded two albums, both receiving 5-stars in JazzWise Reviews. Citing stylistic references that include Brad Mehldau, Aaron Parks and Jacky Terrasson, Harry has also played with leading figures on the contemporary jazz scene such as Jeff Ballard, Mark Turner, Dave Holland and Perico Sambeat.
The Quartet has already achieved two sell out status gigs at London’s famous Pizza Express Jazz Club, Soho & at Ronnie Scott's. Harry is now proud to be a regular member of the House All Stars Band. Tonight the quartet will play well known standards with some original music.
