Harriet Tubman

Presented by SFJAZZ


There's no band on the horizon like Harriet Tubman, a funk/fusion power trio that specializes in open form improvisation. Launched in 1998, the ensemble quickly established a kinetic sound built on the coruscating drumming of J.T. Lewis, the relentless grooves of Melvin Gibbs' electric bass, and the spinning arpeggios emanating from Brandon Ross's electric guitar (and sometimes bandjo).

In evoking the great antebellum freedom fighter, Harriet Tubman made it clear that the triumvirate is dedicated to expanding the freedom trails blazed by Ornette Coleman, George Clinton, and Jimi Hendrix.
