Tonight, in honor of the legendary jazz saxophonist, John Coltrane's birthday, Grammy nominated Donald Harrison will be performing. Donald was born in New Orleans and grew up in a home environment saturated with the city's traditional brass bands, afro-new Orleans culture, modern jazz, R&B, funk, classical, world and dance music. His connection to New Orleans' roots was deepened by his father, a Big Chief, in a new American style of African culture developed in New Orleans. Donald later became the Big Chief of The Congo Square Nation Afro-New Orleans cultural group in 1999. Donald Harrison created "Nouveau Swing," a style off jazz that merges with modern dance music like R&B, Hip-Hop, Soul and Rock. Over three decades playing as a professional artist has placed Harrison on stage and on recordings with some of the most influential artists of the 21st century.
