Presented by Fresno City College and JazzFresno

Donald Harrison New Orleans based saxophonist and famed Mardi Gras Indian tribe "chief" Donald Harrison blazes new trails in contemporary jazz with his "nouveau swing" concept - mixing tradition New Orleans second line, bebop,  swing, funk and hip-hop rhythms into a unique new jazz sound. A former member of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, and the Harrison/Blanchard Quintet (with Terence Blanchard), he rose to fame in the jazz "renaissance" of the 1980’s, and remains a strong force today. An active resident of the Crescent City and a strong advocate for its post-Katrina rebirth, Harrison was named "Person of the Year" by Jazziz Magazine in January 2007. He was featured in Spike Lee's film "When the Levees Broke."
