VOICES Notes and news on Jazz releases
20 NOV 13 DAVID VIENNA
Kris Bowers won the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition at the Kennedy Center. Next year, Heroes + Misfits, his debut as a bandleader hits shelves.
Bowers explained the path that led to recording "Forget-Er" with Julia Easterlin for Revive: He said, "I hit up Julia right after the competition and was like, ‘I want to do a song with you.’ ... Julia sent me a couple different samples and the one that ended up as 'Forget-Er' really drew me in right away." Give the track a listen.
