CRAIG TABORN Avenging Angel

July 20, 2012

Pianist and composer Crag Taborn makes his ECM debut as a leader with the eloquent Avenging Angel. Marrying jazz, classical and avant-garde structures, the album at once reaffi rms and re-examines the power of solo piano performance. In Taborn’s hands, a Steinway assumes a myriad of personalities—at times, he even manages to pull near-electronic timbres out of the acoustic beast. Beyond categorization, Avenging Angel is a recorded triumph. (ecmrecords.com) JON REGEN
