Jason Moran “is like no other pianist at work. His improvisations are dynamic, eruptive, keyed to the compositions at hand.” (Village Voice) A recipient of the prestigious MacArthur Fellowship and winner in DownBeat’s 2011 Critics Poll for Jazz Artist of the Year, Jazz Album of the Year, and winner in both 2011 and 2013 for Pianist of the Year, Jason Moran is “a startlingly gifted pianist with a relentless thirst for experimentation.” (The Los Angeles Times) Alexander Brown’s music mingles classical, rhythm & blues, hip-hop, Afro-Caribbean, and Brazilian styles. “Brown can play!” (DownBeat)
Postlude performance in the Leslie & Anna Dan Galleria.
