BRUNCH W/ ZACC HARRIS’ AMERICAN REVERIE
July 24, 2022 @ 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM$15
Featuring: Zacc Harris (guitar), Matt Peterson (bass) & Lars-Erik Larson (drums)
Inspired by a 2015 trip to his former home near the Shenandoah Mountains in Virginia, Twin Cities guitarist Zacc Harris decided to connect with his Americana roots, taking simple, well-known songs from the American folk tradition and reimagining them with a contemporary jazz sensibility reflecting on a lost America. The trio featuring bassist Matt Peterson and drummer Lars-Erik Larson released its debut album in 2017. City Pageswrote, “It’s a collection of smart contemporary jazz interpretations of folk standards…Harris’ eloquent guitar work highlights pointed commentary with a deft array of melodic abstractions, tempo shifts and harmonic changes.” All About Jazz wrote, “the arrangements are full of fresh twists, all played with an understated warmth.” Harris has been a staple of the Twin Cities jazz scene since moving to Minneapolis in 2005, releasing a number of critically acclaimed albums with the collective group Atlantis Quartet and the Zacc Harris Group, the latter receiving a glowing 4 star review in Downbeat Magazine for its 2021 release Small Wonders. In 2017 he was named Best Jazz Artist by City Pages.
