If you frequent much of the local music scene, especially (but not only) the local jazz scene, chances are you've seen Jeff Harshbarger perform with somebody. This spring, Harshbarger was invited to join the alt-jazz/groove band the Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey. The new gig will make a busier guy even busier, but it won't end or suspend the many music projects he has cooking in Kansas City. Read all about it here. For more videos, see below.
