The Kevin Harris Project plays a distinctive combination of traditional and contemporary music that seeks to explore a crossroad of styles.

One of the appealing elements of the Kevin Harris Project is the level of comfort and understanding they have with one another as they dive into soulfully expressive conversations and playful exchanges of ideas. Both live and recorded performances reflect Harris’s determination to capture his audience through explorative interactions that Terri Lyne Carrington describes as "an exciting commitment to quality."

Harris’s most recently released album, Bird Interpretations, offers a pianist perspective on the music of Charlie Parker. The exciting new trio album exhibits captivating dialogues by Kevin, Francisco Mela, and Ben Street. Harris shares the stage with colleagues such Greg Osby, Jeremy Pelt, Avishai Cohen, Eddie Gomez, Ben Street, and Jerry Bergonzi, to name a few. His ensemble has performed at renowned national and international venues.
