This Thursday Jason Moran, fabulous pianist and composer extraordinaire, will stop by the studio before going on to Snug Harbor for his appearance with the brilliant Herlin Riley.
This young Houston native now resides in Brooklyn and has played with Cassandra Wilson, Steve Coleman, Greg Osby, Stefan Harris, Charles Lloyd and many more Jazz greats.
Moran's debut album “Soundtrack to Human Motion” appeared in 1999 to critical acclaim, as did “Facing Left” which followed a year later. Since that time, Moran has released several ground breaking albums including “The Bandwagon” in 2003 and “Artist In Residence” in 2006. His latest release “Lost in a Dream” is due out within a week and features Paul Motian (percussion) and Chris Potter (reeds).
Jason Moran is a remarkable pianist who can nail a Thelonious Monk standard or be off the hinges with his own compositions.
