Harry Waters is a British piano and Hammond organ player who is internationally known not only for being the son of former Pink Floyd’s bass player Roger Waters but for his inimitable creativity in terms of musical expression in different styles until he found his piano playing way in jazz music.
Harry started his first piano basic-lessons at the age of eight with a piano teacher in England. Five years later he took the learning task to a more serious level with another piano teacher who taught him boogie woogie, blues and ragtime.
Harry Waters played in various bands from funk, metal, rock and pop. He also played for a couple of covers bands such as “Boot-Led Zeppelin” and “The Cosmic Charlies”. All this together gave Harry the opportunity to try out different styles of music and improve his piano playing for three long years mainly immersed into rock music.
The young piano player Waters then started to listen to jazz music and found it particularly interesting to experiment with it and break the rules of rock structures. This eventually caused a notorious change on his piano playing and musical compositions in times where he was playing with a rock band called Hubble Deep Field. This led to some musical disagreements with the band members so Harry walked off. Around the same time he started playing his piano along to Bill Evans and Oscar Peterson albums so it was not that difficult for Waters to finally decide the musical style he wanted to jump in. He formed a quartet band with the following lineup:
Harry Waters: Piano
Brandon Allen: Tenor Sax
Yaron Stavi: Double Bass
Jon Scott: Drums
“Harry Waters Band” played numerous and successful gigs including the “Jazz-i-nec”, a Jazz Festival in Trutnov, Czech Republic.
Harry Waters is currently touring with his father Roger Waters’ The Wall Live in South America, and during his visit to Buenos Aires, Argentina for nine “The Wall” concerts at River Plate Stadium, he will perform in a more intimate environment with musicians by surprise including the Argentine Modern Group “Timotteo”. The event is effectively being presented and promoted by D.B.N, an Argentine Records Distributor Company since Harry’s band recently released a record of 13 tracks. Eleven of those are fully composed by Harry Waters, and two Bonus Tracks “Libertango” and “Violentango” which are versions from Tango Master Astor Piazzola featuring “Timotteo”. Harry Waters’ performance will take place at ND ATENEO Theatre in Buenos Aires on March 11th, 2012.
