“His music needs no labels like ‘postmodern’ or ‘cutting edge.’ It is Stefon Harris music, just as Charles Mingus’s was unmistakably Mingus music” (JazzTimes). Harris’s passionate artistry and astonishing virtuosity have propelled him to the forefront of the jazz scene. Heralded as “one of the most important artists in jazz” (The Los Angeles Times), he was the 2018 recipient of the Doris Duke Artist Awards. He has also received the prestigious Martin E. Segal Award from Lincoln Center, earned four GRAMMY™ nominations, and was named Best Mallet Player eight times by the Jazz Journalists Association. He was also chosen Best Vibes in the 2018 and 2017 DownBeat Critic’s Poll.
