Philadelphia-born pianist and composer Uri Caine is a master of dualities. In his work as both an incisive improviser and a composer of extraordinary imagination, Caine deals equally in granular detail and in sweeping thematic ideas. Caine bridges his dual backgrounds in jazz and classical music in this work for jazz trio, chamber orchestra, and gospel choir, to tell the story of the eponymous 19th-century activist and scholar whose assassination in Philadelphia shook the city to its core.
