Recorded live in concert, May 1996 at The Pizza Express (London, England).

“I’m not going to follow him” - Benny Carter reacting to a piano solo by Gene Harris.

Based on previously unreleased tapes provided by his widow Janie Harris, Live in London is also the only available recording of Harris in action with his British quartet. This group performed together exclusively in the U.K., where hometown audience support and remarkable musicianship elevated their performances to match standards set by Harris's previous work. Most of these tunes have never been recorded by Harris before and none have been previously recorded in quartet ensemble.

1. There Is No Greater Love (Symes, Jones)
2. Blue Monk (Thelonious Monk)
3. My Funny Valentine (Rodgers, Hart)
4. In a Mellow Tone (Duke Ellington)
5. Misty (Erroll Garner)
6. Blues Closer (Gene Harris)
