Video clip from In My Mind, a feature length documentary of Jason Moran & The Big Bandwagon’s take on Thelonious Monk’s Town Hall recording.
UPDATE: This just in: The groundbreaking jazz pianist-composer Jason Moran, a 2010 MacArthur Fellow (aka “Genius Award” winner), has landed atop The Village Voice‘s Fifth Annual Jazz Critics’ Poll for his album, Ten. Not only that, Moran was featured in three other albums that made the top ten, “a fete unprecedented in this poll’s short history,” wrote the Voice. Talk about acclaimed.
In two weeks, Moran is gathering some of the hottest players currently in New York City by way of Houston for two unforgettable nights of music at 92YTribeca on January 14 and 15.
Songwriters featured include Bryan Michael Cox, Leron Thomas, Alan Hampton and Josh Mease. Also appearing are Michael Carvin, Chris Dave, Robert Glasper, Lisa Harris, Eric Harland, Billy Harper, Nicole Hurst, Mark Kelley, Corey King, Brandon Lee, Jason Moran, Mike Moreno, Kendrick Scott, Burniss Earl Travis, Marcos Varela and Jamire Williams.
This is going to be incredible.
