Nu-Jazz Piano Trios and Solos

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, the latest from Matthew Shipp, "4D," and more.
