It occurred to me recently how much we need to appreciate Everette Harp. He'll be 52 on 8/17/2013 and he's celebrating by playing in our Baltimore/DC region. It would be wonderful to show our gratitude for the YEARS of wonderful sax that he has given us.
Look, those who are his fans also include the stars that have employed him - if you didn't know, Everette has worked for Anita Baker, Kenny Loggins, Marcus Miller, the late Teena Marie - and - for a long time, George Duke. This writer cannot bring herself to say "late" before his name. Either can Ev. That friendship and musical partnership was STRONG. And George expressed publicly how he felt about the mastery that Everette Harp possesses.
Who else knows about that? Chuck Loeb and Jeff Lorber. They clearly understand what kind of Jazz, Funk and Soul Everette has. Funny enough, that's the name of this threesome's tour! They are EVERYWHERE these days - and we are blessed to have them stop off in our extended 'hood :)
Everette might tell us about his Houston childhood - the youngest of eight Preacher's kids. He might tell us about his local band back in the day, The Franchise. Or maybe tell us about the day that Teena Marie hired him in L.A., shortly after he moved there in 1988.
Quite possibly, he'll tell us about the advice that he received, over and over, from his mentor and true friend. One of those tips: keep it simple and authentic. Whew - Everette sure listened!
Our handsome, versatile and brilliant saxophonist joins us at the top of the hour on 8/15/2013. He'll be on the road - so however long that he can stay with us - is gravy!
Let's rejoice in great music and look forward to a Birthday Baby's visit. We'll enjoy tracks from various times in his very successful career.
