Listen to the some new jazz piano in both trio and solo forms.  On this New Sounds, we'll listen to the prog-jazzers the Bad Plus, along with something from e.s.t.  Also, solo piano music as heard in the propulsive poundings of Francesco Tristano, and the thoughtful musings of Jason Moran.  Plus, a sampling of Matthew Shipp's "4D," and more.
