One of only a handful of drummers equally well known for his work as a composer, the Toronto native is among the most individual and prolific musicians of his generation. His eclectic resume includes studies with some of the most respected names in jazz and improvised music, West African and Cuban drumming, and performances in genres ranging from film and theater to poetry and dance to contemporary classical and opera.

Most active in jazz and improvised music, Eisenstadt has performed all over the globe, been awarded grants from organizations such as Meet The Composer, American Composers Forum, Canada Council for the Arts, and appeared on more than 60 recordings since 2000, including seventeen as a leader.

Formed during Harris Eisenstadt’s September, 2015 residency at The Stone, Old Growth Forest released its first recording on Clean Feed in 2016. An old growth forest is one that has been left untouched, a place that has been allowed to follow its own natural course, without interruption.
