Donald Harrison, Jr., is one of the most influential modern jazz players of his generation. 'Real Life Stories' is the fourth melody-rich document of his 'Noveau Swing' concept. Yes, it's a killer. Harrison took grooves from pop music styles like funk, rock, Jamaican Dancehall, reggae, hip-hop, Caribbean soca, gospel, New Orleans second-line and R&B, and incorporated them subtly into a hard-swinging acoustic jazz band setting. "You don't EXclude, you INclude, because jazz wouldn't be here if people didn't include," says Harrison. "The beauty of jazz is that you can find the things that are truly you, tell a story, and people can be touched by it."
