John Escreet’s “Seismic Shift” w/ Eric Revis and Damion Reid

October 23, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

Monday, October 23
7:30 pm PDT
Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute


Co-presented with Langston. Sponsored by Seed IP. Welcomed by 91.3 KBCS.

Pianist/composer John Escreet, hailed by Time Out London as a “transatlantic jazz genius,” continues his artistic ascent. The UK native, former Brooklynite and now Los Angeles transplant John Escreet teams up with fellow Angelenos Eric Revis (bass) and Damion Reid (drums) for a set brimming with fire and invention. Their recently released album Seismic Shift (2022, Whirlwind Records) offers ground-shaking evidence that Escreet, with his limitless technique, harmonic imagination and refined grasp of the improviser’s art, ranks as one of the top pianist-auteurs of our time. Equally at home in mainstream, electric, avant-garde and world jazz contexts, he has also built a reputation as a versatile sideman and collaborator with credits including Antonio Sanchez, Tyshawn Sorey, Amir ElSaffar, David Binney, Harish Raghavan, Louis Cole, Genevieve Artadi, and Evan Parker among others.

“Any music I present needs to be varied,” Escreet says. “There needs to be beauty alongside the wild moments, moments of tonality against moments of abstraction. Most of all, any idea put forward, whether composed or improvised, needs to have clarity and purpose.”
