The quintet’s unique drummer Eric Harland is one of the most hip jazz bands of our time!

He was one of the prodigy and quickly established itself as one of the greatest drummers of the world jazz scene. Comes for the first time in our country as a leader, with one all star band. Voyager is the quintet with which the Harland «traveled» the first personal recording with homonymous title in 2010.

In today 36th composer and drummer, who many consider “superhuman skills”, accompanies a fairy tale. From an overweight and unhappy child in Houston, Texas, ended up being one of the most famous musicians of our time! With the encouragement of Wynton Marsalis and studying in New York, Harland took off and worked out by himself Marsalis, with Betty Carter, the Jon Henderson, the Mike Brecker, the McCoy Tyner and Joshua Redman.

In our country knew him as a permanent member of the Charles Lloyd shape while touring with the SF Collective. In the short-long career of 20 years already until today, Eric has participated in over 80 recordings and more than 18 soundtracks movies!

The band consists of Harland leaders like Taylor Eigsti on piano and Walter Smith III on saxophone and tours with it, under the title of Voyager is the most favorite and enjoyable moments for the excellent music.

It is certain that the performances of “Voyager” at the Half Note, will travel … with high flights of improvisation, jazz unexplored magic and contemporary musical expression from a top of the nouvelle vague shape of jazz.
