The 3rd annual "Visionaries & Dreamers Weekend 2012”
will conclude at FCBC with the highly celebrated and Mayoral championed
Jazzmobile featuring international drummer and famed Lincoln Center
Musician Winard Harper. Having played in the 1980s with such notable
musicians as Dexter Gordon, Johnny Griffin, and Betty Carter, Harper
became known for his identifiable eccentric rhythmic sound. From 1988 to
1993 he contributed to the phenomenal success of The Harper Brothers
where he worked alongside a collective of Jazz’s most eclectic artists
such as Justin Robinson, Javon Jackson and Walter Blanding. As his
career progressed Harper would go on to record several albums, and also
form his own sextet, while performing at various notable venues
including New York City’s prestigious Lincoln Center.
"We (the City of New York) continue to celebrate (Jazzmobile) and its phenomenal work…” -Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg
Founded in 1964 by Daphne Arnstein and Dr. William "Billy"
Taylor, the Jazzmobile is a multifaceted, outreach organization
committed to bringing "America's Classical Music"—Jazz—to the largest
possible audience by way of concerts, festivals and special events
