Peter Harris Trio & Germaine Bazzle

Friday, December 15, 6:30-9 pm

Peter Harris, a New Orleans native, has been playing bass professionally since 1996. He has performed around the world with a wide array of artists, including the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Ellis Marsalis & Nicholas Payton. In 2013 Harris released his first CD under his own name, "The Jackal," featuring an impressive lineup of some of the best in the business.

One of the true legends of New Orleans jazz, Germaine Potter Bazzle has been under-recognized nationally and internationally through her entire career. On par with R&B queen Irma Thomas, her voice in jazz is as distinctive as any, with a sweet soul to match. Her exploits singing in the Seventh Ward are unmatched, but she has been known primarily as a teacher. Influenced by the greats like Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, and Billy Eckstein, she took on a repertoire of classic jazz, American popular songs, show tunes, and the music of Duke Ellington.
