Loston Harris’ piano playing has often been described as percussive and incredibly fluid. He works hard to continue a legacy by blending traditional jazz, gospel and blues with his own unique stylings. With early musical inspirations ranging from artists such as Stevie Wonder, Carole King and other notable pop and R&B bands, it was jazz that ultimately chose Loston; for him jazz is hip, serious, complex, improvisational and limitless.
