Let's send some good vibes to Barry Harris.

24 posts in this topic

Barry Harris recently took a fall while on tour. He is pretty banged up and in a rehabilitation facility in Secaucus New Jersey. He is going to be there for a while. Healing will take longer as you progress in years. With his 88th birthday next week, let's send him some positive vibes and wish for a full recovery. 

Get Better Barry. Happy Birthday.

Barry Harris has been one of my favorite jazz piano players ever since I first heard him live in Detroit over 50 years ago.

Get well soon and Happy Birthday.

Heck, I'm only 55 and I've fallen twice in the past year and tweaked my right shoulder so bad that I still can't play volleyball. I'm going a little nuts about it right now. I can't imagine what Barry's going through at the age of 87.

From what Phil Schaap said on the radio this morning, Barry can't even move around at this point. He's just lying in bed.

 It would be great if you could send him a 'Get Well Card' and, for that matter, make it a 'Birthday Card', too.

The Alaris Rehabilitation Ctr
505 County Ave.
Secaucus, NJ. 07094

Thank you very much for this. There's nothing wrong with positive vibes and best wishes, but they don't do a heck of a lot for Barry. On the other hand, a humorous card with a heartfelt message can mean a lot.

Best wishes from a very big fan!

My father spent some time in a rehab center earlier this year, and those places aren't pleasant...Barry could use our support.

He was on tour?  I didn't know he toured- is this a "nursing home"?   is he just staying there while he gets better?

Rehab center is not the same as a nursing home. Not meant to be permanent; recovering patients usually are released from a hospital to a rehab center, where they stay and undergo therapy until they regain sufficient mobility to return home.

Get well soon, Barry! The enemies of Bop are taking over America's only original art form, and destroying the tradition Bird devoted his life to.

We need General Harris to lead us back into the light...

Barry is a national treasure and the true living spirit of Detroit's be-bop heritage.  Wishing him all the best, and a very speedy and full recovery.  We love you Barry!
