Friends, today we mourn the loss of one of the Mount Rushmore figures of Jazz Piano. Barry Harris has left us. One of the great jazz educators of all time, an angelic person and sublime Jazz Guru, one of the most under-rated players, he has contributed as much to Jazz as anyone. His loss we be felt for a long time, and his music and teachings will be felt forever.

Rest in Power Barry! Thank you!!

One of my favorite interpreters of Barry's concepts.

The greatest jazz teacher ever. "He put the virtuoso improvisations of Parker, Gillespie and Powell under a microscope, discovering the musical grammar that makes bebop work — scales, chords, chromatic passing tones. He then organized a set of rules that helps musicians play like natives, without an accent."



Harry Likas was the Technical Editor of Mark Levine's "The Jazz Theory Book" and also helped develop "The Jazz Piano Book." Harry spends his time teaching jazz piano online and playing solo piano gigs.
