Thanks to all who came to the Rose Lehrman Arts Center for the second Spring Series concert Steve Turre’s band played a great set and the Cedar Cliff H.S. Jazz Ensemble opened the show. It
was a great afternoon and those attending were not only treated to some great music, they also got
the premier showing of the two new videos produced by CPFJ. One of the videos is a long look at
our history and our future plans and the other is a documentary on the 2015 jazz Camp. Our thanks
to the Lois Lehrman Grass Foundation for underwriting the production of the films - they will serve
as great promotional tools for many years to come. You may now view the videos on our website www.friendsofjazz.org

Steve Wilson & Stefon Harris
Friday, June 17
Messiah College, High Center for the Arts 7:30PM
1 College Ave., Mechanicsburg, PA 17055
Steve Wilson & Stefon Harris will be teaching at our annual Jazz Camp this
summer (June 15-18) and we will feature their group for our third Spring
Concert during the Camp in the beautiful High Center at Messiah College.
CPFJ is proud to present Steve Wilson & Stefon Harris in concert at Parmer Hall in the High Center at Messiah College. This hall is an
incredible space for live music and these two players and their group will definitely generate some excitement. This event is during the
15th Annual Central PA Jazz Camp and all of the students will be in attendance. There is lots of free parking available at the hall and
tickets are available online at our website - friendsofjazz.org, via phone at the CPFJ Office - 717-540-1010, or via mail with the order
form in this issue of The ViBE. Sponsor, Life and Corporate CPFJ members should have received there tickets by mail.
Vibraphonist/percussionist/composer STEFON HARRIS - 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, Harris is committed to exploring the rich potential of jazz composition and blazing trails on the vibraphone. A graduate of the
Manhattan School of Music he was the recipient of the prestigious Martin Seigal Award from Lincoln Center and has been nominated
for three consecutive Grammys. The Los Angeles Times called him "one of the most important young artists in jazz" who is "at the
forefront of new New York music" and "much in demand as a star sideman". Harris has played with many jazz luminaries including
Steve Turre, Kurt Elling, and Charlie Hunter, in addition to releasing several of his own critically well-regarded albums. Much in
demand as a recording artist, he is featured on CDs by Diana Krall, Kenny Barron, Ry Cooder, Joe Henderson, Jason Moran, and our
own Tim Warfield, Jr. With deep roots in classical music, Stefon was a member of the Classical Jazz Quartet from 2001-2008 with Ron
Carter, Kenny Barron and Lewis Nash that recorded jazz impressions of Rachmaninov, Bach and Tchaikovsky. He has toured and
recorded with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and performed his original works with the Dutch Metropole Orchestra.
Stefon recently took time off and worked with computer and graphic specialists to develop an “App” for jazz education called the
“Harmony Cloud” which he will use to instruct students at this year’s camp.
STEVE WILSON has attained “first-call” status as a studio musician, concert performer and educator. He is currently Associate
Professor at City College of N.Y., and on faculty at the Juilliard School, and has been honored by New York University recognizing his
outstanding service in jazz education. A musician's musician, Wilson has performed on more than 150 recordings as well as eight
recordings as a leader. He began playing saxophone in his native Hampton, Virginia, and performed in R&B/funk bands throughout his
teens. Majoring music at Virginia Commonwealth University, he performed and/or studied with Jimmy and Percy Heath, Jon Hendricks,
Jaki Byard, dFrank Foster and Ellis Marsalis. Landing a chair with O.T.B (Out of the Blue), a sextet of promising young players
recording on Blue Note Records, Wilson moved to New York in 1987 and the following year toured the U.S. and Europe with Lionel
Hampton. Becoming a first-call choice for veteran and emerging artists alike, Wilson was the subject of a New York Times profile "A
Sideman's Life", highlighting his work with the many ensembles that sought his talented services - Ralph Peterson, Jr., Renee Rosnes,
Joanne Brackeen, The American Jazz Orchestra, The Mingus Big Band, The Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, and more. In
1996 he joined the acclaimed Dave Holland Quintet, and from 1998-2001 he was a member of Chick Corea's Grammy winning sextet
"Origin". In 2009 Wilson was a member of the Blue Note 7, an all-star septet assembled to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Blue Note
Records. Also in that year Wilson made his orchestral debut performing Heitor Villa Lobos' Fantasia for Soprano Saxophone and
Chamber Orchestra with the Vermont Mozart Festival Orchestra. By popular demand he returned to the VMF in 2010 performing a
commissioned work Sweet For Duke (for Saxophone & Chamber Orchestra) by Jonathan Ragonese. In a major interview feature, the
Wall Street Journal proclaimed, "The Sideman Becomes the Star." This article declared, "Mr. Wilson is essential to this city's jazz
landscape." Since the 1990's Wilson has been regularly cited in the Downbeat Magazine Critics and Readers' Polls. In 2008, the Jazz
Journalists Association nominated him as Best Alto Sax Player, and for Best Soprano Sax Player in 2010. Wilson currently performs
with several Grammy-winning ensembles: Maria Schneider Orchestra, Christian McBride Big Band, Billy Childs Quartet, Ron Carter Big
Band, and the Buster Williams Quartet.
Please come out for this rare performance by two great jazz masters in this very special space.

As many of you know, we recently received a large bequest of over 2,500 jazz CD's and hundreds of LP's from the estate of
long time CPFJ member Joseph Shaw. We have been presenting the cd's for sale at our concerts, but limited table space has
prevented us from showing all of this collection at one time. The complete collection has now arrived at our expanded
office space where it may all be examined and purchases made.
Call for an appointment after June 1 (717-540-1010) to shop the entire collection. Pricing for the LP's will vary (these are
mostly big bands and vocalists - some quite rare and in great shape). Most CD's are sold at $5.00 per disc. Come visit us
and add some great music to your collection - thanks for your support!
If you have any records or Cds in good condition that you would like to donate, please call us. Donations to
C.P.F.J. are tax deductible.
Ron Waters is the Director for the CPFJ Youth Band.
There is no tuition fee and all applicants are accepted.
Please contact Mr. Waters at (717) 432-3109 or via email
[email protected] - all young musicians with an interest in
learning to improvise are welcome. Our continuing dedication
to jazz education led to the creation of the CPFJ Youth Band over
25 years ago. Mr. Waters is a professional arranger, composer
and trumpet player and the band is open to all school age
musicians - grade school through high school. Mr. Waters
prepares arrangements to suit the particular talents of the
participants each year. All applicants are accepted without
audition - Mr. Waters finds a niche for every instrumentalist and
vocalist. The band’s rehearsals and concerts are scheduled year
round including performances at the Central PA Jazz Festival,
Jazz Picnic, and many other events. Not only do the students get
wonderful experience playing in an improvising ensemble, but
they get to meet kids from other schools who have the same
interests. This ensemble offers a different experience than most
High School Jazz Ensembles - it is not a place where the students
simply read the notes on the page - all members learn to
improvise and get valuable experience playing jazz standards
and original music in a group setting. The Youth Band is also not
restricted to the traditional big band instrumentation (trumpets,
trombones, saxes & rhythm section) - all instruments are
welcome - we have had almost every imaginable
instrument….cello, accordion, oboe, flute, etc. in past bands.
The Youth Band plays all of our festivals and major events as well
as many civic functions and concerts - come join the fun!!
When you visit our web site you will notice a link to the NEW ONLINE STORE. With
this new convenient online site, you are able to pay your membership with any credit
card, and contribute to the Festival, Jazz Camp, or Ron Waters Scholarship Fund.
There is also a link to Amazon.com on our main page that allows you to make any
purchase on Amazon and CPFJ will receive a small percentage of the purchase price
as a contribution from Amazon with no extra charges due from you.
We hope that you will utilize these easy new links and support THE jazz service
organization in our area - the Central PA Friends of Jazz!!
