Jason Moran is “a brilliant, risk taking pianist, whose compositions have earned him a reputation as ‘the future of jazz’” (The Philadelphia Tribune). He returns with his trio The Bandwagon and brings Georgia Anne Muldrow, aka Jyoti, an artist “whose spirit of independence has scattered her presence over as many contexts as her psychedelic, jazz inflected neo-soul sensibility can carry her” (Pitchfork). They collaborate on an exploration of the blues influences of jazz great Charles Mingus and perform works inspired by some of his seminal compositions, including Blues & Roots, Better Get It In Yo’ Soul and the politically charged Fables of Faubus.
