Teddy Harris Quartet

comment
Just when you thought bebop had lost its flavor, pianist Teddy Harris adds new improvisational herbs and spices. Harris learned how to cook and improvise in jazz clubs like the Blue Bird Inn. He has kept bebop stimmering with his quartet and his New Breed BeBop Society Orchestra. Call his brand of bop "Detroit bop" or "De-bop."
