Not since legends Art Blakey and Max Roach sat behind a drum kit has there been a musician in the jazz idiom so deft at leading a group from behind the beat. Winard Harper, however, has proven since the late '80s to be one of the true great bandleaders who sits behind a drum kit. Drawing solidly on technique, Harper explores sounds ranging from African to Caribbean to Afro-Cuban, all wrapped around the core of Hard Bop jazz. In a co-production with the New Jersey Jazz Society, The West Windsor Arts Council will present an evening with Harper. He’ll bring a quartet to dazzle audiences with his virtuosity.
