Jason Moran [is] shaping up to be the most provocative thinker in current jazz." Rolling Stone
Since his formidable emergence on the music scene in the late 90s, jazz pianist 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.
In almost every category that matters - improvisation, composition, group concept, repertoire, technique and experimentation - Moran, and his group the Bandwagon - with bassist Tarus Mateen and drummer Nasheet Waits - have challenged the status quo, and earned the reputation as "the future of jazz."
In 2010, Moran received a prestigious MacArthur Fellowship, commonly known as the "MacArthur Genius Award" which awards $500,000 to each fellow in the hopes of fostering creativity and future advances in any field. He is on the piano faculty at Manhattan School of Music.
