British pianist Jon Escreet has been making waves since he moved to New York in 2006, and especially after graduating in 2008 from the Master’s Program at Manhattan School of Music, where he studied piano with Kenny Barron and Jason Moran.
That very year he released a well-received album, Consequences, which featured David Binney (alto saxophone), Ambrose Akinmusire (trumpet), Matt Brewer (double bass) and Tyshawn Sorey (drums). He has also worked in Binney's other musical projects.
How young artists balance tradition and innovation is always at question in jazz. Escreet's own musical statement tonight will answer the question in his own special way, as his musical vision takes form in the acoustically rich venue at the Rubin Museum of Art.
