Stefon Harris

Vibraphonist/percussionist Stefon Harris originally planned to pursue his music ambitions as an associate of the brand new York Philharmonic, but his initial contact with the music of Charlie Parker convinced him to try out jazz instead. Rising during the middle-’90s on periods led by Steve Turre, Charlie Hunter, among others, he produced his single debut in 1998 using the Blue Take note to push out a Cloud of Crimson Dirt. The Grammy-nominated Dark Action Figure implemented a year afterwards. A cooperation with labelmate, pianist Jacky Terrasson, was a determining minute for Harris. Their week-long display at the Community Vanguard in summertime 2001 was successful, encouraging both performers to interact in the studio room. Kindred, a couple of criteria woven around several original monitors, was released in 2001. The Grand Unification Theory pressed Harris’ boundaries just as before. The 12-piece ensemble jazz collection made an appearance in 2003, ultimately getting Harris the esteemed Martin E. Segal Honor from Jazz at Lincoln Middle. Dates using the Kenny Barron Quintet coincided using the springtime 2004 launch of Development. African Tarantella made an appearance in 2006, adopted three years later on by Urbanus in ’09 2009.
