November 25, 2007 Gene Harris -- Always Rocking, & The Beatles, tooI had a few musical themes going this evening that interestingly enough wove together the music of Gene Harris, the jazz piano player, and The Beatles. And still I was able to fit in lots of music by North Carolina jazz musicians, too.
