ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes


Born Allan Harris in Portland, Jamaica, Jerry has since the age of 14 devoted his life to music. He was influenced by the life
and playing style of his father who was a professional jazz and calypso musician on the hotel circuit in Jamaica. The name Jerry was given to him by musican friends. They felt that Allan had a similar style to guitarist "Jah Jerry" of the Skatalites fame.

His first regular gig as a guitarist/backing vocalist came in 1972 when he played with The Young Experience Band for 4 nights a week at Port Antonio Hotel and night club. From there, the band spent the next two years performing live concerts with artist such as U-Roy, Toots & The Maytals, and the Heptones.U-Roy Also in the band was Jerry's friend, Junior Murvin who would later become famous for the classic "Police And Thieves."


In 1974 Jerry left Jamaica for New York where he joined The Stepping Stone Band. After which, he stepped to The Reckless Breed and The New Breed Band and backed up Burning Spear on his first US tour. This subsequently lead to him supporting such acts as Richie Heavens, Sugar Minott,Ken Booth,The Blues Busters, and numerous other reggae artist in popular venues around the US.

With this experience firmly under his belt, Jerry wanted to further his musical talents by performing solo with his own compositions. His first album I'm For You was released by Wackies Records. He continued to write, play, and arrange his own music which eventually lead him to produce the classic Spreading All Over album in 1987. Then came Rock This Session in 1990, Smile And Be Happy in 1991, all of which were released by Alpha Enterprise based in Japan.

As Jerry Harris & Rhythm Force, he joined the Super Cat Canadian tour and backed popular reggae artist Shabba Ranks in New York. He has been a part of the long running Japansplash since 1985 and toured Japan throughout the 90's. He is now a well known name among Japanese reggae lovers from his touring and backing of Japanese reggae star Nahki, and artists like Tiger, Barrington Levy, Alton Ellis and the list could go on.

In 1992, Harris' music was included on the reggae compilation Yesterday Once More, released on Polystar (Japan). 1993 saw him once again on the second compilation of Polystar, Endless Love. From this exposure, the label then released his 1993 album, Nice 'N' Good To You, which was released mainly in Japan and the far East. Now you can hear the best of his work on his new album Lovers Rock-Tonight.2002,Lovers Paradise,2004,Love and a message,2006,And a none reggae album New York City love
Jerry continue to produce other artist on his Listen Up Records label and work with Japanese record company Avex ,Artist Megarylu,Pang and Nahki.
