Harry McCoy

Tenor Saxophone

I play all woodwinds, with alto, soprano and baritone saxes being my greatest passions. I play multiple woodwinds in combos (Detour Jazz, Beta Jazz). My big band CD recordings include Bandwidth (tenor) and Hard Drive (bari, clarinet, bass clarinet) with the Compaq Big Band; Good Intentions [Seabreeze Jazz] and Stratford Blue (alto and clarinet) with the Stan Bann Big Band; and In Walked Wendy, Bold Move, and Ireland (bari, clarinets) with the Nova Jazz Orchestra.

I moved from the West (Arizona and California) to the East Coast and I've gigged throughout the US and England. I now live in Salem, Mass and gig throughout New England. I subbed on lead alto with the New Legacy Big Band in 2013 and joined full-time on tenor in 2014. This entire region has many great jazz players and I'm pleased to be able to join in and play with them.
