In constant reverence of the jazz idiom while remaining
innovative in his own right, drummer Winard Harper mixes
post-bebop and Afro-centric sensibilities to create "exquisitely
blended ensemble colors" (The Chicago Tribune) with his
remarkable sextet. Also a member of the Billy Taylor Trio, he's
a virtuoso on the cymbals and African drums, as entertaining to
watch as he is to hear. For his sextet's KC Jazz Club engagement,
these "musicians who listen and breathe as one"
(JazzTimes) perform selections from their most
recent album, A Time for the Soul, a collection of
pop favorites, jazz standards, and original tunes.
