“Mr. Harris flaunts his musical showmanship for the stage. “Cross That River” opens with a dissonant jazz instrumental that slowly builds to harmony and breaks open into electrifying solos.” —The New York Times
The unsettled West of the 1860s provides a new life and new dreams for Blue, a runaway slave, who escapes to Texas to become one of America’s first Black Cowboys. Featuring jazzman Allan Harris, this compelling musical tale of freedom integrates fiction with historical fact, and each song presents a different page in this complicated chapter of American History.
