Connie Han says her music is “tough, primal, raw but still intellectually engaging.” She’s not kidding. An exquisite pianist in the McCoy Tyner mold, she also plays the hell of the Fender Rhodes keyboard. The follow-up to the outrageous potential of her 2018 Crime Zone debut, Iron Starlet (Mack Avenue Music Group) is what she is. A new voice for a not only a new generation, but for the generations who lived through the fusion and bebop revolutions, she’s also a bandleader of a dream quintet with bassist Ivan Taylor, drummer/producer Bill Wysaske, sax man Walter Smith III and trumpeter Jeremy Pelt (the new Freddie Hubbard!). Highlights include the 1948 jazz standard “Detour Ahead,” Han’s jazz waltz “The Forsaken” and a roots-reverent cover of “Chambers Of Tain” off Black Codes From The Underground, the Wynton Marsalis album that fueled the ‘80s New Traditionalist movement.
