Billy Harper is a tenor saxophonist who like many of the other great “Texas Tenors” is immediately recognizable by an immense, distinctive sound. Sonically arresting and impressive, he stylistically influenced by Coltrane and 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. A highlight of his quintet is the indispensable pianist George Cables.
