An ambitiously creative musician and a visionary conceptualist whose work embraces modern influences while often reaching into jazz’s past to highlight the untold stories of the music’s history, pianist Jason Moran returns with an innovative solo performance, echoing his Season 1 week as one of the SFJAZZ Center’s first group of Resident Artistic Directors in 2013.

Moran’s music combines jagged, kinetic expressionism and unabashed romanticism, bristling with ideas lifted from some of the less explored corners of the jazz piano pantheon. Winner of numerous awards and honors, including a coveted MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship in 2010, the pianist has released a series of projects as satisfying conceptually as they are sonically, showcasing his capacious intelligence, rollicking touch, and road-less-traveled sensibility. Since he emerged in the late-90s in the quartet of alto saxophonist and ace talent scout Greg Osby, Moran has developed at an exponential rate in the company of his supremely flexible quartet the Bandwagon, honing an approach that soaks up inspirations and reconfigures them to suit his own exacting needs.

Giving free rein to his muse in a solo recital, Moran ranges widely across the jazz continuum, referencing stride, bebop, hip hop and the avant-garde, while making canny use of electronics and pre-recorded segments. It will be an intimate evening of piano music like none you’ve ever experienced, from the mind of a modern master.
