Harper is considered one of the most exciting and innovative drummers in jazz, leading a group that mixes bebop with African rhythms. Equally at home with sticks, brushes or mallets, Harper is both a gifted soloist and rock-solid sideman, having played with Dr. Billy Taylor, Wynton Marsalis, Jimmy Heath,Dexter Gordon, Betty Carter and Wycliffe Gordon. He has surrounded himself with some outstanding young musicians. Trumpeter Patrick
