Everette Harp – Steel City Jazz Festival | Birmingham, AL | June 1 – 3

Everette Harp

As the 90’s progressed and smooth jazz artists began incorporating more hip-hop and classic R&B grooves into the music which came to define the genre, Everette Harp found himself ahead of the curve. Raised in church and weaned on gospel and soul music, the Houston born saxman on his first two Blue Note recordings, Everette Harp (1992) and Common Ground (1994), was already leaning this way, combining dynamic funk edges and urban textures into the mix. His popular 1997 tribute to Marvin Gaye’s 1971 watershed album What’s Going On combined the best of his two worlds, modern day contemporary jazz and the classic soul he grew up with. 1998’s Better Days further solidified his place among the chart-toppers of smooth jazz. While on his previous albums, Harp sought to push the envelope stylistically and show off all of his abilities as writer, arranger, producer and player (even of straight ahead jazz), For the Love strips away the diversions and focuses purely on Harp’s ability to convey powerful emotions via lyrical playing, beautiful melodies and sensuous rhythms.
