American Trombone player, vocalist, composer and arranger David L. Harris Jr. embodies the edge of modern jazz and the sultriness of blues. Every time he steps on stage, David takes us on the emotionally engaging journey of love and liberation, wrapped in a sound that embraces the groove, grit and swing of the past. Growing up in a neighborhood called Scotlandville, in Baton Rouge, La, David L. found his fingers pressed against the sliding brace of the trombone at the age of sixteen and has never let go since. Music lovers have stepped and grooved to the sound of his trombone at some of the liveliest jazz festivals in the world, like The Newport Jazz Festival, The Montreal Jazz Festival, and The New Orleans & Heritage Jazz Festival . David L. has graced legendary concert halls, such as the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, NY, The Lincoln Center in New York, NY, and The L'Olympia Music Hall in Paris, France; and has played beside some of the most astonishingly talented bands and vocalist like Dee Dee Bridgewater, Wynton Marsalis, Shannon Powell, Aaron Neville, Delfeayo Marsalis, Dr. Michael White, and The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra. "From my trombone, I speak of all that my ancestors have spoken and all that is to come."

    Trombone player, vocalist, composer and arranger David L. Harris Jr. embodies the edge of modern jazz and the sultriness of the blues. Every time he steps on stage, David takes us on the emotionally engaging journey of love and liberation, wrapped in a sound that embraces the groove, grit and swing of the past. Growing up in a neighborhood called Scotlandville, in Baton Rouge, La, David L. found his fingers pressed against the sliding brace of the trombone at the age of sixteen and has never let go since then. Self taught, David L. would spend seven hours a day practicing while allowing the sounds of  legendary musicians like Tyree Glenn, Joe “Tricky Sam” Nanton, and Al Grey to train him along the way. David L. went on to further his knowledge of music and fine tune his technique by continuing his studies at Southern University, Louisiana State University, and the University of New Orleans.

    Continuing to let his love for music lead him, nowadays  he can be found swinging his plunger mute gently against the bell of his Antoine Courtois trombone, while playing alongside highly noted musicians at concerts and festivals all over the world. He has captured and moved audiences in China, Europe, Russia, South America, Australia, Canada, South Africa, and in over twenty cities in Japan.
