Craig Harris: Creating God’s Trombones

Craig HarrisAcclaimed trombonist Craig Harris has performed with a veritable Who’s Who of artists, including Sun Ra, Lester Bowie, Abdullah Ibrahim and Sekou Sundiata. His own projects include Brown Butterfly, a multimedia piece based on the movements of Muhammad Ali, and Souls Within the Veil, based on W.E.B DuBois’ book The Souls of Black Folk.

In this podcast Craig talks about his early career with Sun Ra, why he is drawn to transform written work into all-encompassing performances, and details of his current project, God’s Trombones, a work based on James Weldon Johnson’s 1927 collection of poems inspired by African American preachers.
