John Escreet: Music for This Age
And there it is. Escreet, in his very young career, is doing just that. An album he recorded in January will come out this fall. He also wants to record with his trio within the next year or so, "But then again, a thing or two might happen that you can't predict. If you'd have asked me two years ago if I wanted to record an album with Wayne Krantz and Marcus Gilmore, that probably wouldn't have been on my radar."
Escreet's radar is expansive, though. Who knows what it will detect. Chances are what it does detect and assimilate will produce music that is interesting and energizing. He's making that his way.
