Join us for a preshow curtain warmer session outside on the Holland Center Outdoors stage at 6:30 PM with Omaha’s Shawn Bell Trio. Listen and learn about the differences and compliments between classical and contemporary jazz music.
A leading force in new jazz, composer-pianist Jason Moran plays with an unmistakable sense of funk, fluidity, and freedom. Together with his group The Bandwagon, bassist Tarus Mateen and drummer Nasheet Waits, deliver an explosive combination of classical and contemporary jazz styles.
Moran was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2010 and is the Artistic Director for Jazz at The Kennedy Center. The Rolling Stone says he is “the most provocative thinker in current jazz."
