Description of Basses Covered by Bernard Harris
Just when you think you've heard it all in music, along comes Bernard Harris, a young, gifted artist who delivers an entirely unique ensemble-performance concept as a lead bass guitarist. Remember the name because with his first release, "BASSES COVERED," Bernard Harris has introduced to the music cadre, ALL BASS guitars and drums for a sound that already seems to appeal to a diverse audience.
In the 70's "plucked bass" specialists Larry Graham and The Brothers Johnson proved that a rhythm musician could lead with a bass, Bernard Harris appropriately in the new millennium has advanced the creative envelope to develop the bass melodically into a strikingly rich group sound. A naturalist at making the Piccolo Bass come alive, the performances on his CD consist of exceptional material, much of it original, covering gospel, jazz, and rhythm & blues.
Harris is a product of Raleigh, NC, one of the South's geographical mixing bowls of Black culture. Now residing in Nashville, Tennessee, his musical creativity has soared and has opened up a pathway of opportunity beyond an instrumentalist on Bass to a Solo artist, with rhythm and style beyond his years!
