Stefon Harris' passionate artistry, energetic stage presence, and astonishing virtuosity have propelled him into the forefront of the current jazz scene. Widely recognized and lauded by both his peers and Jazz critics alike, Harris is committed to both exploring the rich potential of Jazz composition and blazing new trails on the vibraphone.
Jacky Terrasson was born in Berlin to a French father and an American mother, he was raised in Paris and began studying classical piano at the age of five.

By the mid-90's, pianist Jacky Terrasson was being hailed as one of the bright young lions on the traditional jazz scene. His self-titled 1995 debut for Blue Note Records drew high praise from all corners of the jazz world.
