Tom Harrison wrote to me recently < … looking forward to the gig, it is a really incredible band who are coming to oxford to play for you … >
Tom reached a national audience following the release of his band Dagda’s self-titled debut album in 2012. The live group featured American tenor saxophonist Jean Toussaint , described by Time Out magazine as “guitar sax-led melodic modern jazz with a poppy/rocky edge”.
Tom released his second album Unfolding in Tempo in 2016. The album features Robert Mitchell, David Lyttle, Daniel Casimir and Cleveland Watkiss. It was recorded live earlier that year and received a large amount of attention from the media, including a feature on BBC News.
Unfolding in Tempo (buy it HERE) was released on Lyte Records in October 2016. The release was a critical success with praise from the media. BBC Music Magazine said, “Records like this don’t come along too often…Leader Tom Harrison’s confidently uninhibited wailing on alto reflects his three years engrossed in and performing Ellingtonia. His tender solo take on ‘Warm Valley’ brings closure to a stormy, no holds barred live set.”.
An extract from Tom’s extensive website reads:
Tom is making a serious commitment to jazz expression through his collaborations with living artists who are strongly connected to the heritage of jazz. Since graduating from the master’s degree programme at Trinity Laban Conservatoire in 2012, Tom has released two critically acclaimed albums and toured the UK 11 times as a bandleader. Tom has performed in over 20 countries, touring in France, Germany and the USA.
