Jazz quintet «Donald Harrison
A recital of the U.S. quintet «Donald Harrison's Quantum Leap» took place in the Krasnoyarsk Musical Theater and became one of the highlights of the jazz program at the IV International Music Festival of the Asia-Pacific region. The performance of the group led by a legendary composer, saxophonist Donald Harrison was a great success. The musicians represented their interpretation of famous jazz compositions, at the same time mixing elements of various musical styles. A new jazz style called «Nouveau Swing» which D. Harrison and his group develop is a mix of modern dance tunes (R & B, hip-hop, soul, rock and jazz) and traditional African music with kept ritual chants.
Donald Harrison's quintet won the Krasnoyarsk public. During the concert the audience danced and sang with the musicians. Admirers of the quintet didn’t let the artistes from the stage, over and over again calling them for an encore.
The Festival of the Asia-Pacific region will continue till July, 4.
