Graham Haynes and Synesthesia – Harlem Afternoon Jazz Series

GRAHAM HAYNESGraham Haynes is regarded as an innovator on cornet and flugelhorn, an extraordinary composer, and an emerging force in contemporary electronic music and world music. His two years at Queens College studying composition, harmony and theory spurred his interest in classical and electronic music. He formed the band Five Elements with alto saxophonist Steve Coleman, which launched the M-Base collective, an influential group of NY improvisers. During the late ‘80’s Haynes immersed himself in a wide range of African, Arabic and South Asian music; since 2000 he has worked as a composer and music director on several multimedia projects. Graham has recorded fifteen critically acclaimed CD’s as a leader and countless CD’s as a side person. Since 2013 Haynes has been a member of the Vijay Iyer Sextet. Graham tours annually in Europe, Asia, and Africa and appeared several times on national television.
