About this event

Kevin Harris is a Boston and New York based jazz pianist and composer. Mr. Harris plays a distinctive combination of traditional and contemporary music that seeks to celebrate the musical influences of Thelonious Monk and Miles Davis, intersecting with J.S. Bach, Scott Joplin, and the folkloric African rhythms of the Caribbean. “Pulse” is a large, compelling chamber composition combining improvised and fully notated music. In Winsor’s twenty-year history of commissioning new works, “Pulse” will be the first piece directly linked to jazz. This project is made possible by a Live Arts Boston grant from the Boston Foundation. For the larger program, we have chosen two works that complement Harris’ composition and echo both its spiritual and secular themes. The concert will open with an arrangement of Johann Sebastian Bach’s organ prelude, “Nun komm’ der Heiden Heiland.” This deeply personal piece keeps the listener moving through an ever-changing musical landscape. The next piece, “Joy Boy” by Julius Eastman evokes the excitement the composer felt while encountering a new crush. Following intermission, we will bring together all the musicians to present Harris’ newly composed work, further exploring and revealing these innately human themes.
