New York, NY: December 22 – 92YTribeca proudly presents a special evening featuring two of the most talented pianists in modern jazz – Jason Moran and Geri Allen.
Recently appointed the Kennedy Center's Artistic Adviser for Jazz, groundbreaking jazz pianist/composer and 2010 MacArthur Fellow Jason Moran takes the stage with his trio The Bandwagon, featuring bassist Tarus Mateen and drummer Nasheet Waits. Moran and The Bandwagon have established themselves risk-takers and innovators. “When Jason Moran performs with his trio, Bandwagon,” says The New York Times, “he engages in a ritual that befits one of the most independent minds now working in jazz.”
This concert also features a special solo performance by pianist, composer, and educator Geri Allen, a musician of extraordinary breadth and exceptional sensitivity. Described by Rolling Stone as "the finest pianist of her generation, a gripping stylist whose mastery can no longer be denied,” Allen is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship for Composition in 2008, and the youngest and only woman to win Denmark’s prestigious Jazzpar Prize.
