EDITOR’S CHOICE: ROBERT GLASPER & JASON MORAN
JUNE 25 AT 21:00 CEST
Like every month, Editor’s Choice presents a hand-picked favorite of Stingray DJAZZ's editor-in-chief Rokas Kučinskas. This month's choice fell on the duo of Robert Glasper and Jason Moran. These two stellar pianists from Houston, Texas, are celebrated for their unique styles and innovative approach to early 21st-century jazz. Performing as a duo, they give their own spin to a long piano duo tradition in jazz: many of the genre's greatest pianists were inspired by the two-piano format. Chick Corea, for example, performed some of his most inspired concerts side by side with Hiromi Uehara, Keith Jarrett, Herbie Hancock and Joe Zawinul. Enjoy Robert Glasper and Jason Moran in concert on Saturday, June 25, at 21:00 CEST on Stingray DJAZZ.
