All over the years Jazz has dialogued with popular music, refreshing itself this way, I am pleased with this kind of engagement, Brad Mehldau always looks for these new sounds opening new doors.
Jason Moran is tracing where jazz is going and carries the strong tradition of jazz greats – this is his first solo album – Modernistic.
