Description

After six decades as a professional musician Randy Weston remains one of the world's foremost pianists and composers, a true innovator and visionary. "Weston has the biggest sound of any jazz pianist since Ellington and Monk," writes Stanley Crouch. In a career that began in the late 1940s, Weston has criss-crossed the globe connecting the African diaspora through sound. "Mr. Weston is a truth seeker who sees a power in music much greater than all of us," writes The New York Times.
