Biography

Per Amazon’s Editorial: One of the most accessible of all jazz pianists, Gene Harris’ soulful style (influenced by Oscar Peterson and containing the blues-iness of a Junior Mance) was immediately likable and predictably excellent. After playing in an Army band (1951-1954), he formed a trio with bassist Andy Simpkins and drummer Bill Dowdy which was, by 1956, known as the Three Sounds. The group was quite popular, and recorded regularly during 1956-1970 for Blue Note and Verve. Actually, according to Gene Harris, his style of playing was most heavily influenced by Erroll Garner.
