The 9th season of Jazz at the Arsenal, featuring Berklee faculty artists, opens with the Berklee New Orleans Jazz Band.

The Kevin Harris Project
Black Box Theater
Wednesday, December 21, 2016, 7:30 pm


When the unmistakable musical influences of Thelonious Monk and Charlie Parker intersect with J.S. Bach, Scott Joplin, and the folkloric rhythms of Cuba, could one possibly conceptualize the celebration that occurs at that intersection? Kevin Harris plays a distinctive combination of traditional and contemporary music that seeks to explore such a crossroad.
