Barry Harris in The Hague (Video)

This video is part of a collection of videos which Frans Elsen recorded during workshops that Barry Harris gave at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague between 1989 and 1998.  

He and Barry shared a mutual appreciation of each others music and were close friends. He carefully selected these films from many hours of recorded material. He did most of this work during his stay in Italy in collaboration with Oscar Zenari. It gives a unique insight in Barry’s wonderful ways of teaching and his extraordinary musicianship.

There is a lot of cross reference between the films, they can be watched individually in any sequence.

These videos are an important historical document of one of Jazz music’s finest and foremost musicians and educators.
