An eye for tailored suits, smart dress and jazz music which has an alternative twist, Ray Harris, keyboard wizard and front man for RAY HARRIS & THE FUSION EXPERIENCE, delivers an exciting live album for exclusive worldwide release. "Live Impressions" is an eclectic collection of live performances recorded in the UK at various music festivals & concerts between 2008 and 2009, and features extended versions of crowd favourites such as "Scaramunga", "One Of A Kind" and "Tokyo Blue". This album is out now and available via Digital Download only.
Renowned for his intense performances, Ray Harris’ energy and music is portrayed perfectly throughout this exciting album. Mr. Harris’ influences are clearly evident on "Live Impressions", with a distinctive feel for 60s' & 70s' music but with a modern concept, covering a broad spectrum of styles and featuring elements and influences of Acid Jazz and crossover electro Jazz-Soul-Funk. As Harris states, “This album features all my musical influences by incorporating jazz, soul, funk, latin, blues and rock. I decided to record a live album to transfer the energy of my live performance in to a recording as I feel my music is portrayed best when performed live.” And after listening to this album, you'll be convinced of that too: smoking!
"A mix marriage between acoustic elements of music and electric sound with a slight touch of soul jazz from the 70s" - Rolling Stone Magazine
"Smoking live work from Ray Harris – and a set that really opens up the sound we've heard from his excellent studio recordings! The groove here is totally classic – lots of 70s keyboard-drenched modes – played to perfection by Ray with a sound that's half jazz funk, half instrumental soul – fit beautifully into the soulful groove laid down by his Fusion Experience combo! There's a warmth here that reminds us of those years back when the London scene would totally get their sound right – especially on the few vocal numbers on the set – and Ray plays both acoustic and electric piano, which makes for a great mix." - Dusty Groove America
