Salsa Steel featuring Bill Harris

Salsa Steel featuring Bill Harris

Review from Cadence Magazine in New York. "Harris and his crew shine in particular on the Brazilian material. Carlos Jobim's 'Dindi' flows naturally, the tunes sparkling natural rhythm cutting through Lynn Williard's gauzy keyboard accompaniment. A reading of 'Central Park West' also has that unfolding quality. Keith Jarrett's 'Lucky Southern' and Jobim's 'Once I Loved' well executed bossa novas, are high-lights of the disc. Gregory K. Robinson"

Children's Show/ Los Angeles Times/ Lynne Heffley/ Saturday, July 13, 2002 - Look and Listen Several years ago, San Diego- based literacy promoter and actor-singer Stacey Roberts began using original songs and a stuffed, dreadlock-bedecked dinosaur named Reggie to encourage children to read and inspire them to pursue learning. This smooth and mellow CD by Roberts and composer-producer Bill Harris was created to share that message with a wider audience, mixing sophisticated traditional jazz, Latin jazz and pop melodies with simple lyrics in songs about reading.
