Stefon Harris & Blackout
October 25, 2019 at 7:30 PM
Gorecki Family Theater, CSB
Against the blur and visual fireworks of his flying mallets, musical phenom Stefon Harris is forging a trail-blazing sound.
Heralded as "one of the most important artists in jazz" by The Los Angeles Times, Stefon Harris performs with passionate artistry and astonishing precision. His exceptional band, Blackout, defies traditional jazz definitions. Together, they embrace sleek, slinky soul, funk, R&B and hip-hop - like Stevie Wonder rubbing elbows with George Gershwin. This sought-after bandleader, sideman (for Wynton Marsalis, Diana Krall, Ry Cooder, Common and others), teacher, and TED Talk thought leader was called “the standout vibraphonist of his generation” by The New Yorker.”
