Legendary pianist Stanley Cowell, a dedicated educator who is now Professor Emeritus of Jazz Piano at Rutgers, has returned to a more active performing and recording schedule in recent years. His career includes performances with Max Roach, Miles Davis, Charles Tolliver, Sonny Rollins and many, many more. Mike Joyce writing in the Washington Post says, “Listening to him, it’s always easy to become fascinated by the sound of two hands improvising independently, the right swift and fluid, the left vigorous and contrapuntal. At times Cowell conjured the golden age of Harlem “ticklers” or flashed Art Tatum-like flourishes amid evocative blues riffs and gospel chords. And yet his sophisticated sense of harmony was consistently fresh, inventive and surprising.” In the New York Times, Nate Chinen writes, “Mr. Cowell is a bit unclassifiable, and jazz has a lot of use for his curiosity and challenge and friction, as well as his virtuosity.”
