“A great, lively band that preserves the tradition of classic jazz without embalming it. The creativity is at full throttle, and so is the sense of fun. You can’t listen to Al and his friends and not feel better about life in general.”

— Joe Barron, Montgomery Newspapers

“The Al Harrison Dixieland Band is one of the true Traditional Jazz bands left that plays original New Orleans style tunes with gusto. Al and his guys have a terrific sound blended together, and creative solos that impress all jazz lovers. Our Cape May Traditional Jazz Society has had the pleasure of The Al Harrison Dixieland Band play a number of gigs for us in the past few years. Each of these gigs had enthusiastic audiences clapping and giving standing ovations for the fun time. We will continue to have Al and his guys back for future gigs.”

— Bob Ashman, President, Cape May Traditional Jazz Society

“Al Harrison is widely regarded as one of the finest Dixieland trumpets in the land. Add Stan Hunter on the piano, Bob Newman on trombone, James “Skip” Johnson on bass and Jimmy Paxson (of the great Stanley Clarke trio) on drums – and maybe we see what makes the magic work in “Magic, Magic, Magic!”
