Description

Release Date: 06/04/21

Defined by infectious joy, undeniable passion and youthful energy, Bruce Harris' Soundview will absolutely delight.

Two great sources of inspiration for me: my roots - the neighborhood in which I was born, Soundview, South Bronx NY, and my current Home Sugar Hill, Harlem.


Although it was not a place filled with privilege and opportunity, Soundview was and is rich in artistic excellence and indomitable spirit. Much of the music on this record was either composed and refined here in Sugar Hill. This record is a tribute to my family and community in the Bronx and to the black excellence that began in the Harlem Renaissance. I hope you enjoy!

Contrary to opinion, Jazz has always reflected the times. Sadly again, we are bearing witness to the racial injustice in the United States, wherein Black people's lives are constantly at risk, particularly by those sworn to protect its citizens. As harrowing as this is, there seems to be a dialog in which black voices are finally being heard. The Cellar Music Group recognizes that Jazz is not only a music native to America, but that the progenitors of this music are the very lives that are being threatened daily. I'm pleased to present the first of four releases led by Black artists that I will be producing for Cellar Music.

As someone who was born in Canada, who grew up here and who still lives here, I've been somewhat sheltered from the injustices going on south of the border. As a result, I have unconsciously used this as an excuse to not engage in conversations about racism and discrimination with my Black friends and heroes of this music that I love. I now realize that to be silent is to be complicit. This is no longer an option for me, and I stand in solidarity with our Black brothers and sisters.
