June 22. One of today's most in-demand jazz drummers, Winard Harper was just out of his teens when he joined Dexter Gordon's band; from there it was on to stints with Johnny Griffin, Betty Carter, Wycliffe Gordon, Ray Bryant, and the quintet he co-led with his brother, trumpeter Philip Harper. The percussionist, who here hits the Falcon with his own sextet, continues to work all around the world and record with such artists such as Joe Lovano, Avery Sharpe, Steve Turre, Frank Wess, Jimmy Heath, and others. (Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys do-se-do June 15; Aashish Khan graces the stage June 20.) 8pm. Donation. Marlboro.
