New Vibraphonist Stefon Harris to Bird
BY LARS BJÖRN
interesting new vibraphone player Stefon Harris visited the
Bird of Paradise in Ann Arbor on April 6 with his quartet: Orrin
Evans, piano; Tarus Mateen, bass; and Terrean "Tank" Gully, drums.
Harris dominated the evening with his great technique, good sense
of dynamics and sensitive playing. He has a distinctive personal
approach to the vibes and is likely to become a major voice in the
future. The quartet impressed me as four serious young musicians
who listened very intently to each other.
