John Escreet
Consequences
Posi-Tone

Straddling through-composed and free-form music, the U.K.-born pianist-composer John Escreet delves into original, forward-thinking territory with fellow New Yorkers and like-minded musical renegades like trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire, alto saxophonist David Binney, bassist Matt Brewer and drummer Tyshawn Sorey. From the 30-minute “Suite of Consequence” to the episodic “Wayne’s World,” with allusions to Wayne Shorter’s harmonic genius, to the lyrical “Dilemma” and a solo piano cover of Andrew Hill’s “No Doubt,” this is challenging, rewarding stuff for adventurous listeners.
