View Website

Voted the #1 Up-and-Coming Drummer of 2018 in Modern Drummer, Jonathan Barber has recorded and toured worldwide with a host of important leaders including artists as Buster Williams, Wallace Roney, J.D. Allen, Nicholas Payton, and Stefon Harris. But in addition to his first-call sideman status, Barber has steadily emerged as a composer and leader with his own Vision Ahead band: DownBeat hailed the group's self-titled 2018 debut album as Barber's "greatest accomplishment to date." Since its live debut at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Vision Ahead has been a compelling showcase of Barber's broad stylistic range as a composer and performer: a hip blend of classic, swinging jazz with elements of gospel, rock, soul, and fusion. "I recognize my God-given gift," says Jonathan Barber. "Maximizing this gift to its full potential is the best thing you can do for yourself. Operating in this gift is how you give back to the world." Jonathan Barber – drums Godwin Louis – alto saxophone Andrew Renfroe – guitar Matt Dwonszyk – bass Taber Gable – piano
