Billy Harper, a sonically arresting and moving tenor saxophonist, is — like many of the other great “Texas Tenors” — immediately recognizable by an immense, distinctive sound. Stylistically influenced by Coltrane, Harper has worked extensively with Art Blakey, Max Roach, Gil Evans, Elvin Jones, and Lee Morgan. The San Francisco Chronicle reports, “He is a soul of sensitivity and intelligence, as well as of explosive, majestic passion.” The Village Voice adds that he is “one of the most original and inventive composers I’ve ever encountered.
