Stephen Philip Harvey Jazz Orchestra
Stephen Philip Harvey Jazz Orchestra In Concert at the Jazz Cave at the Nashville Jazz Workshop on Saturday, September 24th, 2022.
The band takes the stage at 7:30pm CST (Doors at 7:00pm).
Stephen Philip Harvey is an African American saxophonist, composer, arranger, and educator based in Maryland. He’ll visit Nashville September 24 to lead a big band of some of Nashville’s finest musicians in a program of his original works.
As a musician and bandleader, Stephen has performed extensively in the Mid-Atlantic region and its bordering areas.. Several projects under his belt include his electric quintet, Sphinx, his mid-sized jazz combo, SPH8, and his large ensemble the Stephen Philip Harvey Jazz Orchestra (SPHJO). The SPHJO is currently celebrating the release of their debut album, Smash!
Passionate about both jazz and pop culture, Harvey never shies away from blending both into his writing. In Smash!, Harvey uses contemporary big band writing styles and genre-blending idioms to bring comic book inspired pieces to life. These compositions combine elements of big band jazz, fusion, funk, rock, and cinematic score to bring classic characters and scenes off the page. This collection of music takes you from your seats and put you right in the battle of hero vs. villain. Whether you want to fly through the skies, hatch a nefarious plot, or just smash something, the Stephen Philip Harvey Jazz Orchestra has a piece for you. Come join in on the action!
