The audience was completely blown away by the charismatic Winard Harper and his outstanding group, Jeli Posse. We've had so many great concerts at Jazzway, but this was one of our most special.  So many folks came up and said it was one of the most enjoyable (if not THE best) concerts we've presented. Winard is such a beautiful soul and his virtuosity and happiness permeated the room. Watching the interplay between Winard and his equally joyful and musically outstanding band members was completely infectious and delighted the audience! A wonderful quote that was posted to his webpage recently sums it up:

 “Most of us know that this music is profound; even apocalyptic at times. However, it is so often approached on such a casual social and commercial level, we tend to ignore and overlook the stirrings within our souls and the voices of our ancestral ‘spirits’ that remind us of the fact, that there is a revelation of certain prophetic dimensions inherent in this music.”
–Doug Carn

 Everyone will remember this concert for a long time.  And I am committed to bringing Winard and his group back. The dedication he shows to his young players in teaching them to revere the tradition of the past great ones, while encouraging them to be bold and modern in their innovative approaches, makes him one of our nation's most precious heroes of jazz!
