A Manhattan School of Music graduate, Stefon Harris considered a career in classical music until he tuned in to the jazz sounds of Charlie Parker.

The 11-movement suite The Grand Unification Theory premiered three years later. For 2004's Evolution, Harris was backed by his band Blackout. Subsequent releases of note include Urbanus (2009) and Ninety Miles (2011). In addition to his many musical engagements, both as leader and band member, Stefon Harris is an active educator.
