Craig Harris is a trombonist, prolific composer, sonic shaman, and one of creative music's most progressive thought-leaders. From touring with Sun Ra to co-composing the film score for Judas and the Black Messiah, Craig uses his musical voice to comment on social injustice and humanity. Craig's influential original works include God's Trombones, based on James Weldon Johnson's book of sermons; Souls Within the Veil, commemorating the 100th anniversary of W.E.B. DuBois's seminal work; TriHarlenium, a sound portrait and 30-year musical time capsule of Harlem; Brown Butterfly, a tribute to the exquisite movements of Muhammad Ali; and BREATHE, a sonic statement in response to the long term and current injustices inflicted upon African American people.

Committed to presenting music in the iconic communities where it was created, Craig's designation as a Jazz Hero for his long standing curation of Harlem concerts, joins an array of prestigious honors bestowed upon him as artist, and community advocate. Nominated by NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Soundtrack/Compilation Album, Craig is co-composer of the score for the Oscar-winning film Judas and the Black Messiah. Craig's newest recording, Managing the Mask, was successfully released in 2022.
