The blending of tap dance and jazz piano can make for beautiful and striking music—just ask Michel Camilo, McCoy Tyner, and Savion Glover, who have all dabbled in that alchemy. Geri Allen furthers the tap-piano legacy by combining her already propulsive piano trio with dancer Maurice Chestnut’s lithe improvisations. Even though you can’t see Chestnut’s moves, his fiery exchanges with Allen and drummer Kassa Overall elevate the music to a different plane. (Motema, geriallen.com)
