25 Emmet Cohen: Future Stride

“I’m concerned with the lineage, and excited by the lineage of the music and the lineage of humanity, knowing that in order to understand what’s going to happen in the future, we have to understand and excavate things about the past.” 

Emmet Cohen

⁠Emmet Cohen discusses the importance of understanding the history and music of the jazz greats, before pushing the music forward into the future. His album Future Stride does just that, resurrecting 20s classics like “Dardanella” but also using modern techniques such as overdubbing on originals like “Little Angel.” ⁠
