Recently named "Up and Coming Artist of the Year" by the Jazz Journalists Association, 27-year-old pianist Jason Moran has already built a reputation as a jazz original-so well versed in the music's history that he uses the tradition to adventurously chart his own singular path. Don't miss this rising star and his quartet.

Influenced by opera, classical, rap, world music, fine art, and film, Jason Moran "has assimilated piano techniques of eight decades, devising a personal music that refuses to acknowledge stylistic prejudices." The Village Voice

This performance is part of the Eighth Annual Billy Taylor Jazz Residency
