Sabotage and Celebration http://wrti.org en ICON Suggests: Pianist and Composer John Escreet's SABOTAGE AND CELEBRATION http://wrti.org/post/icon-suggests-pianist-and-composer-john-escreets-sabotage-and-celebration <p>Ever since he released his debut recording, <em>Consequences</em>, on Posi-Tone Records in 2008, British pianist John Escreet has persisted in pushing at boundaries. On his subsequent rhythmically adventurous recordings you can hear the influence of avant-pianist Andrew Hill and former teacher Jason Moran, but as beguiling as those recordings were, they were more like really good sketch books with one or two amazing tunes with ideas for days and musician line-ups where everyone, none more so than the pianist, played their ass off.</p> Thu, 21 Nov 2013 16:47:28 +0000 Nick Bewsey 6709 at http://wrti.org ICON Suggests: Pianist and Composer John Escreet's SABOTAGE AND CELEBRATION
