Any time you find an artist talented enough to take on the songs of an icon, its worth sitting down to watch. And when it comes to revamping the classics of jazz great Nat King Cole, vocalist Allan Harris is no paper moonhes the real deal. Three-time winner of New Yorks Nightlife Award for Outstanding Jazz Vocalist, Harris is known for his rich, warm tone along with his impressive skills behind the piano. And this week, he graces the stage of the Carpenter Center for an unforgettable night of classics, courtesy of the King himself. Plus, if hearing some velvety vocals isnt enough to satisfy you, hungry guests can enjoy an authentic Italian meal before the show. So even if youre a little stuffed after, the jazz will definitely help your heart feel lighter.
