Drummer Winard Harper and his newest band Jeli Posse will celebrate the release of their new CD "Coexist" at New York's celebrated Jazz Standard on Tuesday, November 13, and Wednesday, November 14.

Jeli Posse consists of vocalist Jazzmeia Horn, trumpeter Bruce Harris, horn players Jonathan Beshay and JoVan Alexander, pianists Roy Asaf and Tadataka Unno, bassist Stephen Porter and percussionist Alioune Faye. Special guests include acclaimed reedman Frank Wess and New Orleans trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis.

Winard Harper is considered one of the most exciting and innovative drummers in jazz, leading a group that mixes bebop with African and Caribbean rhythms. Equally at home with sticks, brushes or mallets, Harper is both a gifted soloist and rock-solid bandleader, and he has surrounded himself with outstanding young musicians. Harper is best known to jazz audiences around the world not only for his work with The Harper Brothers Quintet, but also as the drummer for Dr. Billy Taylor and the great Betty Carter.

The Jazz Standard is located at 116 East 27th Street in New York City. Shows are at 7:30 and 9:30 with late shows on Friday and Saturday. For reservations, call 212-576-2232 or visit www.winardharper.com.
