The guest for this episode is Los Angeles-based jazz pianist Connie Han. Her latest album, "Crime Zone", was released last fall on the Detroit-based Mack Avenue Records to rave reviews. Still in her early 20s, Han combines ideals from both traditional and modern jazz eras with a bold provocative edge to it.
The Connie Han Trio is playing the Wayne State University Pyramid Stage on Sunday, September 1st here in Detroit at the Detroit Jazz Festival.
During our conversation, we talked about her musical upbringing, standing out in today’s era of jazz music, mentorship, her creative process, learning from jazz music’s past, her latest album "Crime Zone", and just being bold.
Each episode, the guest is asked to suggest someone from their life/career that should be on Fresh is the Word that would have good stories to tell. Han chose her mentor, drummer Bill Wysaske who also plays in her band and produced "Crime Zone". conniehanjazz billwysaske mackavenuerecords steinwayandsons
