Born in Azerbaijan, Shahin Novrasli draws on Caucasian culture, classical European music and jazz beats to carve out his own unique brand of music. Endorsed by the maestro, Ahmad Jamal, this young pianist is an artist and composer to be reckoned with. His art of improvisation, inherited from the mugham tradition, places him among the most innovative music-makers today, at the crossroads between East and West. Emanation is available from Jazz Village on digital Friday, April 7 and on CD and LP June 9.
