"Introspective, jazzy pop, but the through-line in all of Jesse Harris' work seems to be a pared-down, unfussy approach to music that clearly comes from the heart."

Jesse Harris largely pays the bills playing guitar for Norah Jones, but he’s also an accomplished solo artist in his own right. This past August, the New York singer-songwriter gave us Through the Night, which PopMatters’ Jennifer Cooke described as “introspective, jazzy pop, but the through-line in all of his work seems to be a pared-down, unfussy approach to music that clearly comes from the heart.” Today, we offer an exclusive download from the album, the über mellow “It’s a Long Way Just to Say Hello”, with the lovely Brazilian jazz touches.
