JazzPOP: Joshua White 6tet

Aug 15, 2019

A concert performance by Joshua White 6tet. Steeped in classical, gospel, and modern jazz, Joshua White is one of the most exciting voices in a generation in West Coast jazz. The San Diego pianist has performed and recorded with Mark Dresser, Nicole Mitchell, Rudresh Mahanthappa, David Binney, and Greg Osby, and is revered as an improviser of startling versatility and intellect. White’s music privileges freedom and spontaneity, as he directs his band through passages pensive at one moment, thunderous the next.
