It still is. It’s about the creative spirit. You have to tell a story.  In effect, when I play, I’m painting a picture with music.” Harry continues to play jazz vibraphone on a regular basis, playing as a solo artist as well as with the Harry Sheppard Trio featuring Bob Chadwick (flute), and Al Pagliuso (percussion)A true legend of jazz music and a treat to experience live.  Don’t miss "A Night of Jazz" with the Harry Sheppard Trio!
