Now's the Time: Eric Harland's Voyager
In the immortal words of Lucy van Pelt, there are "five good reasons" to be in the audience at the Gem Theater on Saturday, April 20. Rather than consisting of the components of Lucy's cartoon fist, those reasons are drummer Eric Harland, guitarist Julian Lage, pianist Taylor Eigsti, saxophonist Walter Smith III and bassist Harish Raghavan. Members of Harland's Voyager, the five men are among the most acclaimed young(-ish) musicians in jazz. Joe Klopus highlighted Voyager's appearance in his weekly column.
