When Craig Harris exploded onto the jazz scene in 1976, he brought the entire history of the jazz trombone with him.

From the growling gutbucket intensity of early New Orleans music through the refined, articulate improvisation of the modern era set forth by J.J. Johnson, and into the confrontational expressionism of the '60s avant-garde. Craig handled the total vernacular the way a skilled orator utilizes the spoken word.

But the contemporary music world quickly realized that his talents went far beyond his superb skills as a trombonist.

While he performed with a veritable Who's Who of progressive jazz’ most important figures - his own projects displayed both a unique sense of concept and a total command of the sweeping expanse of African-American musical expression.
