BEST LOCAL MUSICIAN 

Jeff Harshbarger

Critics' Choice

Jeff Harshbarger has traveled the world playing bass with the acclaimed modern-jazz ensemble Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey. But he calls Kansas City home, and it's here that he shows his range. He's a founding member of the People's Liberation Big Band, driving its eclectic music each first Sunday (part of his twice-monthly Jeff Harshbarger Presents jazz series at RecordBar). He plays Turkish jazz in Alaturka and Portuguese music with Fado Novato. He has backed ultra-weird Snuff Jazz and sat in with Bach Aria Soloists. His ensemble Sequel reimagines the jazz of Medeski Martin & Wood. Or you might find him with Bobby Watson swinging the blues with legendary singer Ernie Andrews. Whenever Harshbarger solos, we're treated to intricacies and enchantments. In a city full of outstanding jazz musicians, Harshbarger's talent — like his big, burly, bearded presence — stands out on any stage.
