Waxing Modernistic Has Its Upsides

Hats off to Jason Moran. Exploration isn’t for everyone, and those who lead the pack should be acknowledged. He’s been awarded a MacArthur Grant for “expanding the boundaries of jazz expression.” Quite rightly so. He talks about the award’s impact.

AND DON’T FORGET: taking musical knowledge to the ‘hoods is also a job well done. Congrats and thanks to Providence’s Sebastian Ruth.
