THIS WEEK ON THE JAZZ SESSION: On the new episode of The Jazz  
Session, Jason Crane interviews pianist Jason Moran at the 2007  
Rochester International Jazz Festival. Moran came to play with two  
bands — his own Bandwagon and Don Byron’s Ivey Divey trio. Moran’s  
most recent CD is Artist In Residence (Blue Note, 2006), an album  
composed mostly of Moran’s commissioned works. Moran talks about  
philosopher Adrian Piper, pianist Jaki Byard, and his new commission  
to create a multimedia piece inspired by Thelonious Monk’s 1959 Town  
Hall concert.
