Donald Harrison


Emerging from the talent-laden New Orleans jazz scene in the 1980ís along with Wynton Marsalis, Branford Marsalis, Harry Connick, Jr., and Terrence Blanchard, Donald Harrison has established himself as the preeminent alto saxophonist of the post-bop generation. 

After recording and performance stintís with Art Blakeyís Jazz Messengers, Ellis Marsalis, Roy Haynes, Jack McDuff, Larry Coryell, Eddie Palmeieri, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Lenny White, and Tony Williams, Donald Harrison broke out with a number of trend setting albums in the late-80ís that included fellow Jazz Messenger Terrence Blanchard. 

Now with over a dozen albums under his belt, Donald has solidified his role as the leading alto sax player in jazz today.
