Allan Harris – Long Live the King

Allan Harris
Long Live the King
(Love Productions – 2007)
by Narvy James

On his new CD “Long LIve The King” Allan Harris pays tribute to the quintessential jazz crooner, Nat King Cole. If you want an idea of how this up and comer in the jazz vocal arena sounds, imagine cooking up a mix of Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra in a stew pot and you have an idea of the (Phenomenal) Allan Harris.

Recorded live at the Kennedy Center in New York, Harris covers classics like “Mona Lisa”, “The Very Thought of You” and “Paper Moon” with a smooth assuredness that has righteously garnered him rave reviews from the likes of the Miami Herald, the New York Post and, of course, ME.

Harris has brought back that great smooth, silky style of crooning that has been missing since The great Nat King Cole. Allan Harris has a warm, relaxing kind of voice that soothes you, helps you unwind after a long day, I highly recommend this CD to everyone.
