Winard Harper Sextet: Make It Happen

Read "Make It Happen" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Winard Harper è un batterista che lavora da tempo con questo gruppo con cui, cosa non sempre possibile per chi segue la strada del bop più o meno “verace", cerca sempre di portare novità nella sua musica, di mischiare le carte con armonie e ritmi inusuali per il genere che fa.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
