Wednesday, September 19, 2012 - 6:00pm

Vibraphonist and bandleader Stefon Harris is one of the busiest musicians in jazz: He tours with his band Blackout and the SF Jazz Collective, teaches at NYU and is an artist-in-residence at institutions across the U.S. Born with asthma, Harris took to piano and percussion at an early age, but that never stopped him from admiring a trumpeter like Miles Davis.

"The thing I admire most about Miles is his ability as a leader," Harris says. "He is my hero and someone who I model myself after as a leader. He was able to bring incredibly gifted people together and allow them to be fully creative in that space."

Harris is also a three-time Grammy nominee and has been named Best Mallet Player by the Jazz Journalists Association six times. Here, Harris showcases his fiery work on the vibes through a polished set of standards and originals with host Jon Weber.
