Loston Harris' piano playing has been described as percussive but incredibly fluid, his vocals, suave and contemporary. For more than a decade Loston has headlined the legendary Bemelmans Bar in the Carlyle Hotel, a spot previously held by Bobby Short, Eartha Kitt, Elaine Stritch, John Pizzarelli and the Modern Jazz Quartet (MJQ). One of Loston's mentors, Michael Feinstein, calls him an "innate and dazzling talent… a beacon of quality," while John Pizzarelli calls Loston "a singular sensation of what music is in NY." Loston and his quartet, along with very special guest vocalist Monica Behan, perform swinging arrangements of timeless standards from the Great American Songbook, selections from his recent CD "Swingfully Yours" (Magenta Label Group).
