In the Tradition Series Featuring Karla Harris
July 6 @ 7:30 pm - 8:00 pm
On July 6, at 7:30 PM, join us for an engaging conversation between jazz vocalist Karla Harris and WCLK’s Ray Cornelius.
From velvety vulnerability to soul-tinged power, jazz vocalist Karla Harris brings sophisticated warmth and a dynamic delivery to the music, drawing listeners into the story and musical substance of the songs she sings. She has made a career within the art form she loves for more than three decades, performing for audiences from Portland to Provence.
Her repertoire blends genres with subtlety, remaining respectful to the roots of a song; her art lies not only in expansive vocals but also in tapping into the emotion of a tune, and delivering it fully.
“She lends her pulse to be a part of the heartbeat of the entire process, vocals and instrumentals,” writes AXS.com, “and the strange meandering force that lies between.” Critical Jazz says, “Rich, full-bodied and with a slight buttery finish, Karla Harris has mad skills – a vocal artist with impeccable phrasing and the innate gift to have the band play with and not around her.”
