Geri Allen

Pianist, composer, and educator Geri Allen presents the world premiere of her solo piano work, "Refractions, Flying Toward the Sound." Allen received a Guggenheim Fellowship to create this composition, which celebrates the humanity and embraces the continuity of innovation in jazz, as personified by three of the revolutionary pianist-composers—Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner, and Cecil Taylor.
