Jazz pianist and composer Kevin Harris and his trio - known as the Kevin Harris Project - perform at the Jazz Club of the Multicultural Arts Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts on Friday, December 17, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. Harris is a gifted composer whose influences range from Thelonius Monk and Keith Jarrett to Daniel Perez and Frederic Chopin.
Then jazz vocalist Valerie Stephen takes the stage at 9:00 p.m. for a Tribute to Nina Simone. Stephens captures the finesse and the fury of Simone, whose iconic music captured a tumultuous time in American life.
Tickets to each show are $15, or $25 for both shows, and can be ordered online. Also, discounts apply for seniors, students and members of the Center.
