Craig Taborn - Junk Magic (2004)

Craig Taborn is an american keyboardist from Minneapolis who has played with Roscoe Mithcell, Tim Berne, James Carter and the techno/house producer Carl Craig, among others.
This is another outstanding issue from Thirsty Ear's Blue Series.

Junk Magic, Taborn, armed with his piano, laptop, techno and breakbeat pedigrees, makes jazz just another part of marginal pop culture as it endures, changes, and mutates. Junk Magic is a stunner from start to finish, and one that challenges the notions and linguistic senses as to what jazz "is," as well as what it is not. (Taken from AMG)
