Music

Jason Moran & Herlin Riley

by

Pianist Moran likes his music to crackle—rhythm is paramount—and Drummer Riley dispenses pleasure cadences as a matter of course, his N’awlins roots giving him all sorts of scope. Nothing wrong with bass players, but this duet should be one of those marvels where the participants try to suss each other’s strengths while demanding a few truly poetic moments.
