After meeting Loston Harris at the 1st Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition, Harry Connick Jr. led Loston to study with his mentor, Ellis Marsalis, who encouraged him to switch instruments from drums to piano. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Loston is doing his part to continue a legacy by blending traditional jazz, gospel and blues with his own unique stylings. He has performed and toured with Wynton Marsalis, and appeared on the PBS special Portraits in Blue with Grammy nominee Marcus Roberts. Loston has appeared in the feature film Little Manhattan, was the on-air personality for the episode of BET on Jazz highlighting the St. Lucia Jazz Festival, and co-headlined at the Friars Club Gala event honoring comedian/actor Don Rickles. His latest album, Swingfully Yours (Magenta Label Group), showcases swinging arrangements of timeless standards from the Great American Songbook.
