Capital Jazz Project: Eric Harland Voyager

Capital Jazz Project: Eric Harland Voyager

Enter uncharted sonic terrain for a mind-altering experience Regarded by many as the most formidable drummer alive, Eric Harland has been the rhythmic catalyst for many of the definitive jazz recordings of the past 15 years, a groove muse whose stunning power and fluency on the kit has inspired Charles Lloyd, McCoy Tyner, Greg Osby, Terence Blanchard and many other jazz masters. Respectful of jazz tradition without being constrained by it, Harland has also emerged as an ambitious composer, melding improvised music with traces of hip hop, neo-soul and post-rock through his live debut album Live by Night and 2014's Vipassana. Inspired by space and time, Voyager is a meditative spiritual journey delivering multilayered grooves, lush melodies, hypnotic group improvisation and supreme, timeless artistry. "The band's camaraderie and extremely tight bond is expressed via awe-striking performances. *****" ALL ABOUT JAZZ "Drummer Eric Harland has come to embody all that is right and good in jazz and drumming today. He's a drummer's drummer, a musician's musician, and a supremely gifted communicator, capturing the spirit of sound and soul in his every beat."
