In 2019, Jazz Reckoned With Old Boundaries, and Marched Past Them


Contemporary jazz musicians are limber, open-eared and risk-minded. They collaborate widely, and across genre. They look to nonmusical forms for inspiration. They make work that’s intensely personal.

On this week’s Popcast, a conversation about the most adventurous jazz albums of 2019, including LPs from Kris Davis, the Tomeka Reid Quartet, Angel Bat Dawid and Joel Ross. And a discussion about how the pianist Jason Moran is using the contexts of contemporary art and the museum to expand the understanding and representation of jazz history.

On the Popcast:

  • Martin Johnson, who writes about jazz for The Wall Street Journal and JazzTimes

  • Giovanni Russonello, who writes about jazz for The New York Times
