“I can play standards the rest of my life, but I wanted to step away and see what I could do that was different,” jazz pianist and composer Taylor Eigsti says of this latest pop-centric album. Eigsti covers his own tunes, along with Coldplay, Imogen Heap, and others. Particularly impressive is Eigsti’s bass ostinato-fired romp through Coldplay’s “Daylight,” which pits post-bop piano pyrotechnics against the dynamic drumming of Eric Harland.
