Now is the Time May 29

For the Memorial Day Weekend, Sunday May 29th, it’s all solo piano music on Now is the Time. Judith Lang Zaimont’s CD of rags, Prestidigitations, yields two delights, and we dip into Nicola Melville’s recording of some of her favorite contemporary composers for the engaging work by Kevin Beavers. Finally, David Baker’s jazz-inspired first Sonata contains tributes to Paul Lawrence Dunbar and John Coltrane.
