He became known as one of the finest interpreters of Thelonius Monk's music, and he composes many original tunes.</span></p><p></p><p><span style="background-color: transparent; font-family: Arial; font-size: 15px; line-height: 1.15;">In addition to a busy touring schedule, Moran teaches at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. “I learn a lot from what the students are doing. It keeps me engaged from what's happening in contemporary music, from the 19-year-old perspective. It's helpful.” Tue, 19 Nov 2013 01:06:10 +0000 Reese Erlich 36081 at http://kalw.org Jazz Perspective: Jason Moran
