“Whitaker’s new album not only communicates his growth as a player, composer and bandleader, but also the importance of community and the connections it fosters,” Harlem Stage notes on their website. “Having been musically trained in Harlem, it’s fitting for Whitaker to debut his new album at the Harlem Stage Gatehouse, celebrating his ties to the city that has shaped him as one of the leading artists of his generation.”
Marcos Robinson (guitar), Karim Hutton (bass) and Isaiah Johnson (drums) will join Whitaker for the performance.
The performance is presented as part of Harlem Stage’s fall 2021 season. Whitaker received the Harlem Stage Emerging Artist Award in 2018.
Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination and masks required to attend.
