About the artist
LOVE, is the message that Jazz Saxophonist Reginald C. Harris conveys every time he performs. He captivates his listeners with his smooth tones and styles. Born Oct. 16 in Columbus, Georgia, at a very young age, his parents introduced him to music. With the violin being his first instrument in the 3rd grade, he later picked up the saxophone in the 6th grade and, immediately, fell in Love with Jazz.
From playing in the Band at Beach High School in Savannah, Georgia through College at Fort Valley State University, Reginald increased his craft in Marching Band as section Leader and Drum Major. Reginald's major influences are David Sanborn, Kenny G, Kirk Whalum and Gerald Albright.
After completing two B.S. Degrees at Fort Valley State in 1997, Reginald began serving the Lord using his talent in the Church and later joined Gospel Recording Group, 1-A-Chord in 2001. Since then, the group has completed two CDs. Now, as a Solo Artist, his love for Jazz has positioned him to open up for Gospel Saxophonist Angella Christie and Jazz Trumpeter Joey Sommerville, minister in song at Atlanta’s VA Medical Center's Stand Down Event for Homeless Veterans, perform for Entrepreneur Kwame Jackson of the Apprentice, Atlanta’s Next Best Jazz Artist, and perform at Atlanta’s premier restaurants: Chicago’s Nancy’s Pizzeria-(Buckhead), Sambuca-(Buckhead), Chef Rob’s Caribbean Café, Café 290, and Londzell’s in Roswell.
Reginald also has a heart for the spiritual growth of teens. As the Teen Minister at Solid Stone Ministries, he frequently pours into the lives of the youth the importance of Jesus’ Love for us all. As CEO of Bible & Blanket Ministries, Reginald and his wife have partnered with Solid Stone Ministries and Safehouse Outreach, providing a vehicle of Hope to the less fortunate in the Atlanta community, donating Bibles and Blankets and toiletries, while spreading God’s Love.
As the Co-Owner of Atlanta 1Voice Showcase, he and Gospel Artist Trish Standley have partnered together to provide a platform for some of Atlanta’s best Gospel/Christian Artists to showcase their talent while lifting up the name of Jesus Christ!
