Listing Detail Tabs

On 'While the Music Lasts,' Jesse Harris and The Ferdinandos deliver the same nuanced, introspective songwriting and compellingly bittersweet musical sensibility that are already well known to listeners who discovered the foursome's widely acclaimed 2003 Verve release 'The Secret Sun' - and to the millions who were introduced to Harris' talents via his work with longtime friend and collaborator Norah Jones. The New York-bred troubadour played guitar and wrote five songs for Jones' multi-platinum breakthrough album 'Come Away with Me' - including the massive hit "Don't Know Why," for which Harris won a Grammy award for Song of the Year.

'While the Music Lasts' offers 14 new Harris compositions, which maintain the artist's established levels of emotional resonance, melodic craft and vocal intimacy. The vivid lyrics and exquisite melodies of such memorable tunes as "Wild Eyes," "Wish I Was A Bird," "I Never Changed My Mind," "I Have No Idea" and "Mirror Ball" are driven home by inventive, understated arrangements that highlight the organic interplay of Harris and his bandmates, guitarist Tony Scherr (who co-produced the album with Harris), bassist Tim Luntzel and drummer Dan Rieser (who stepped in last year for longtime member Kenny Wollesen, who returns to play on three of the tracks).
