Stefon Harris + Blackout
Start Date: 1/18/2019Start Time: 8:00 PM
End Date: 1/22/2019End Time: Midnight

Event Description:
“His music needs no labels like ‘postmodern’ or ‘cutting edge’. It is Stefon Harris music, as Charles Mingus, he insisted, was Mingus music.”
– JazzTimes
Lauded by the Los Angeles Times as “one of the most important artists in jazz,” vibraphonist Stefon Harris returns to Purdue Convocations—this time with his ensemble, Blackout. So named for their rejection of traditional jazz definitions, Blackout embraces sleek, slinky soul, funk, hip-hop, and go-go—like Stevie Wonder rubbing elbows with George Gershwin and bop icons. It’s among many projects for Harris, in demand as a bandleader, sideman (for Wynton Marsalis, Diana Krall, Ry Cooder, and Common, among others), teacher, and TED Talk thought leader. Enjoy this energetic kickoff to the 2019 Purdue Jazz Festival, with a performer The New Yorker called “the standout vibraphonist of his generation.”
7PM / 1869 TAP ROOM
Join composer, jazz pianist, and music educator Judd Danby for a discussion about the evening’s performance.
LOCATION: 128 Memorial Mall, West Lafayette , IN, 47907, United States
