A talented post bop altoist with a personal angular style, Donald Harrison came to fame with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers but has not become a major name in jazz yet despite his talent. He studied at the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts with Ellis Marsalis, went to Berklee (1979-80), worked with Roy Haynes and Jack McDuff and was with Blakey during 1982-84, sharing the frontline with Terence Blanchard. Harrison and Blanchard co-led a group for a few years, recording frequently before they broke up their band. Donald Harrison returned to the Jazz Messengers for a few brief occasions, led his own groups and recorded as a leader for Candid, making guest appearances on CTI sessions
