“Stan Getz was once asked his idea of the perfect tenor saxophone soloist. His answer was, ‘My technique, Al Cohn’s ideas, and Zoot’s time.’ The fulfillment of that ideal may well be embodied in… Harry Allen.”

– Gene Lees, jazz writer and lyricist (Corcovado, Dreamer, Waltz for Debby)

Harry Allen has recorded over 70 CDs as a leader and many more as a sideman. In 2020, Harry Allen was inducted into the Jazz Monsters Hall of Fame at SOKA University of America and was a top-three finalist for France’s Acadamie du Jazz’s Prix du Jazz Classique for his CD, “Under a Blanket of Blue.”
