Philadelphia-born pianist Uri Caine is an extremely well-rounded player with an effortlessly quick improvising wit, and his multi-stylistic musical sensibility and his mastery of both acoustic piano and Fender Rhodes makes him a desirable addition to just about any group. But he's also a composer and arranger of tremendous imagination, with a work ethic to match--which is why his 1993 JMT recording debut Sphere Music
has been followed by 15 other CDs that cover an enormous stylistic range.
Contributing Editor Paul Olson spoke at length with Caine about Shelf-Life, his latest CD with his Bedrock trio, approaching a classical repertoire with a fresh perspective, and more.
