Craig Taborn

Composer, pianist, ECM Artist Craig Taborn is one of the giants of piano improvisation working today.  Although he comes out of a jazz tradition he pushes relentlessly the ‘free’ in ‘free jazz’ – his improvisations have the freedom to change, at a moment’s notice, from jazzy melody to edgy minimalism to breathless propulsion and angular energy.
