My Inspiration - 2008

“My Inspiration” is the latest release from jazz saxophonist Everette Harp. This veteran musician delivers an energetic, funky project with personality, which is not typical of your average smooth jazz CD. It definitely helps the project’s direction that Everette co-wrote 8 of the 10 songs on the album.

The album kicks off with the down home funky “Juke Joint”, which features James Lloyd of Pieces of A Dream on keyboards, who also wrote the tune. “Funky Palisades”, is another spirited song, that features Jeff Lorber on keys, while George Duke sits in on the cruisin’ rhythms of. “Chasin’”.

If mid-tempo grooves are more to your liking, you’ll surely enjoy “Wait 4 U”, “Don’t Look Any Further’, an instrumental take of Dennis Edwards’ Soul anthem, and “Old School”, which subtly recreates the rhythm tracks of the 70s classic soul era. When it’s time to chill-out, relax, and perhaps reflect a bit, “In My Father’s Eyes”, and “My Inspiration” are perfect to set the right atmosphere. -By Craig Chapman

In The Moment - 2006

This new late May release is Everette's first release on Shanachie Records. It focuses again on the upbeat, energetic, and funky side of Harp's playing and songwriting, while all the while pulling you in with engaging melodies and improvisation. This cd, while bearing Harp's significant musical stamp, is enhanced by the co-writing, and ample production skills of producer Rex Rideout, who co-wrote and co-produced 6 of the 10 songs on the cd. Songwriters / musicians Barry J. Eastmond, Chuck Loeb, and David Mann also contributed wonderfully to this cd rounding out it's strong musical content.

Everette is joined by his mentor and friend, keyboardist and producer legend George Duke, who can also be found on all of Harp's previous cds. He is also joined by some of the best guitarist in music today...Norman Brown, Chuck Loeb, Paul Jackson Jr., Jonathan Butler, and A. Ray "The Weeper" Fuller, as well as his usual cast of top notch studio musicians who make this cd jump through the speakers and into your soul.

All For You - 2004

This upcoming mid-summer release is Everette's first cd in four years, and his first for A440 Music Group. It is an infectious, funky, upbeat record which showcases Harp's unique energetic style of playing and songwriting. The CD has a mixture of all the elements of contemporary jazz....smooth, jazzy, and funk. Invariably, Harp finds a spot in each song to let loose soloistically, which Harp calls "my selfish moments". "I know radio really doesn't want to hear you get too jazzy, but it's the only way I'm going to grow as a player. All the rest gets a bit mundane after a while. You gotta let loose and just go for it sometimes." Joining Harp on this release will be Earl Klugh, George Duke, Norman Brown, Dwight Sills, Paul Jackson Jr., and many more.

For The Love - 2000

The album title is not simply a reflection of the very romantic vibe found in many of the collection's titles. Rather, it refers to Harp's overall intention to play from the heart for the love of the music. "The title encompasses the whole feeling of the project and the personal place I'm in right now. There's less riffing, less eclecticism and more real feeling. I stepped back a bit and took a more laid back approach. That was a bit of a struggle at first, but I absolutely love the results."
