    ProducerJason Moran

    Personnel: Jason Moran (piano); Marvin Sewell (guitar); Ralph Alessi (trumpet); Tarus Mateen (bass instrument); Nasheet Waits (drums); Abdou M'Boup (percussion).
    In terms of talent and output, pianist Jason Moran immediately established himself as one of contemporary jazz's brightest lights upon arriving in the late 1990s, but that his vision found him constantly pushing boundaries and flouting expectation made him shine even brighter. ARTIST IN RESIDENCE (2006) draws from work Moran completed on commission, and includes experiments with spoken word, operatic vocals, minimalism, and stylistic collages. In addition to being a superior musician seemingly in command of almost any mode, Moran continues to expand his palette on ARTIST IN RESIDENCE, offering a varied yet cohesive glimpse into his kaleidoscopic artistic world.

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (p.78) - "[The] pieces lack none of his playful invention and rhythmic thrust yet aspire to grander meaning." -- Grade: A-
    JazzTimes (p.69) - "The music -- especially Moran's own improvising -- is excellent."
    Vibe (p.140) - "This time the results are intimate, spiky and abstract."
