Bruce Harris is an exceptional musician and trumpet player who fearlessly explores the boundaries of contemporary music within New York City’s legendary jazz scene. With a deep-rooted appreciation for tradition and a penchant for innovative ideas, Harris juggles multiple roles as a musician, trumpeter, curator, mentor, and educator.

A Bronx native, he spent his formative years in the thriving musical landscape of 1980s New York City. Growing up amidst the Hip-hop era’s epicenter, he was also exposed to the echoes of the influential Be-bop era, a significant part of the city’s musical heritage. Surrounded by music, Harris sought a means of self-expression and found it in the trumpet. At 12, he began emulating the works of his inspirations, including Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Marvin Gaye, and Prince.

During high school, Harris’s talent earned him the opportunity to perform alongside renowned trumpeter Wynton Marsalis through the “Essentially Ellington” jazz band competition, further fueling his passion for music. He pursued his education in jazz performance, studying under trumpet virtuoso Jon Faddis at SUNY Purchase College, where he obtained both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree. Bruce Harris has established a professional career defined by his joy, passion, and energy.

He has honed his skills and delighted audiences in New York’s prestigious music venues and jazz clubs, including Smalls, Smoke Jazz Club, Dizzy’s Club, Ginny’s Supper Club, Minton’s, and Rockwood Music Hall. Harris’s talents have also graced national television, with appearances on CBS’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Additionally, he has showcased his abilities in two Broadway productions: After Midnight (2013) and Shuffle Along (2016).

Throughout his career, Harris has shared the stage with an illustrious roster of performers, including Wynton Marsalis & the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Dave Brubeck, Billy Taylor, The Count Basie Orchestra, Barry Harris, Roy Hargrove, Tony Bennett, Fantasia Barrino, Patti Labelle, Audra McDonald, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Steve Martin, Seth MacFarlane, Prairie Home Companion, and Harry Connick Jr.

As a recording artist, Bruce Harris has showcased his talent on two albums: his debut “Beginnings,” released under the Posi-tone label, and “Soundview,” released under Cellar Live and La Reverse Records. In 2022, he co-led an album with saxophonist Grant Stewart titled “The Lighting of The Lamp,” also released under Cellar Live or La Reverse Records. These albums feature an impressive lineup of musicians, including Sullivan Fortner, Samara Joy, David Wong, Aaron Kimmel, Clovis Nicholas, Jerry Weldon, and Michael Weiss.

Harris has signed with Equitone Records and is working on a tribute album to his mentor, Barry Harris, expected to be released in the fall in collaboration with Ehud Asherie. Currently, Bruce Harris is a prominent figure in New York City’s vibrant music scene. Alongside his global tours, he eagerly anticipates his performance at the renowned Newport Jazz Festival, where he will pay homage to Louis Armstrong, practicing on his trusted Lotus Trumpets, grateful for his endorsement with the esteemed brand.
