Recently appointed the Kennedy Center's artistic adviser for jazz, groundbreaking pianist/composer and 2010 MacArthur Fellow (a.k.a. “Genius Award” winner) Jason Moran will take the stage with his trio The Bandwagon, featuring bassist Tarus Mateen and drummer Nasheet Waits.
Since his formidable emergence on the music scene in the late 90s, Jason Moran has proven more than his brilliance as a performer. The Blue Note Records recording artist has established himself as a risk-taker and innovator of new directions for jazz as a whole. Notes Rolling Stone, “Jason Moran [is] shaping up to be the most provocative thinker in current jazz.” In almost every category that matters—improvisation, composition, group concept, repertoire, technique and experimentation—Moran and his group The Bandwagon have challenged the status quo and earned the reputation as “the future of jazz.”
Hailed by the New York Times as "soulfully earnest," pianist, composer and educator Geri Allen is a musician of extraordinary breadth and exceptional sensitivity. Her many professional credits include a highly acclaimed Blue Note recording of Duke Ellington classics with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, also featuring the legendary Lena Horne. She has been closely associated with the music of Mary Lou Williams and has performed the music of Ms. Williams in concerts at the Kennedy Center and at Jazz at Lincoln Center with Wynton Marsalis. Additionally, she has collaborated with such renowned jazz legends as Ornette Coleman, Betty Carter and Charlie Haden. Ms. Allen, both the youngest and the only female recipient of Denmark's prestigious Jazzpar Prize, was described by Rolling Stone as "the finest pianist of her generation, a gripping stylist whose mastery can no longer be denied." Ms. Allen is a 2008 recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship for Composition. We are thrilled that she will take the stage at 92YTribeca in a very special solo performance.
This evening will also feature a video projection in relation to Geri Allen's performance by acclaimed artist Carrie Mae Weems.
