Bassist/vocalist/composer Jeff Harshbarger has collaborated with visual artists (Nick Cave, David Ford, Molly Murphy) and musicians (Bobby Watson, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, David Balakrishnan) to produce work that challenges convention. He curates a twice-monthly concert series that promotes original composition, and hosts “Jazz in the Afternoon” on KKFI. A lecturer in Jazz Studies at KU, Harshbarger is the recipient of fellowships from the Charlotte Street Foundation, The Kennedy Center, and The Steans’ Institute. Jeff will be looking for GuildIt forum feedback on a nonprofit he is starting, among other art/biz items.
