Composer/Pianist/Electronic Musician Craig Taborn was born and raised in Golden Valley, Minnesota.  While Studying at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Craig had the good fortune to play in the illustrious Detroit jazz community as well as playing and recording with some of the biggest names around.

Hailed as the “#1 rising Star Keyboardist” in the 55th and 56th Downbeat Critics poll, Taborn has established himself as one of the most interesting musicians working today. We are delighted to present the Brooklyn based pianist as he launches Moving on Music’s seventh Brilliant Corners jazz festival.

“Taborn is much more than an elite jazz piano shredder. He’s a compositional force.” – Pitchfork

“However far from familiar paths the American pianist Craig Taborn strays, he sounds surefootedly convinced of his route, and however private his music, it emits a vivid intensity.” – The Guardian
