About

Heralded as "one of the most important young artists in jazz" (Los Angeles Times), vibraphonist-composer Stefon Harris returns to the Kennedy Center for the first time since 2004. Praised for playing "unadulterated jazz that found the sweet spot between challenging and accessible, grooving hard and swinging harder" (Ottawa Citizen), Harris has been propelled to the forefront of the current jazz scene through passionate artistry, energetic stage presence, and astonishing virtuosity. With his band Blackout, including DC native and recent winner of the 2009 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition, bassist Ben Williams, Harris will be performing music from his upcoming album Urbanus, a hybrid of acoustic music and progressive sounds.
