Frank Harrison - First Light (CD)
Release Date: 10/05/10
Thought provoking, intense, original, delicate piano. Refreshing and gorgeous.
This Spring Frank Harrison launches his debut album FIRST LIGHT on Basho Records. Frank displays an extraordinarily mature musicality for his age. The music is original, thoughtful, delicate and imbued with texture and colour. It's very lack of over-exuberance and freneticism is a refreshing change. This is thought-provoking and intense. Born in Oxford on 8 July 1978, he took up the piano at 11, playing gigs at 15. In 1994 he won the soloist award in the Daily Telegraph Young Jazz Competition, and in 1996 placed second in Young Jazz Musician Of The Year. After a scholarship at Berklee School Of Music, Boston, he returned to England to join Gilad Atzmon's band. In 2000 they started the Orient House Ensemble, with whom Frank has recorded four albums on Enja Records, including BBC Jazz Album Of The Year 2003, 'Exile'. The band regularly tours Europe, playing major Jazz and World music festivals.
