The young pianist James Francies, fresh off his debut recording as a bandleader for Blue Note, performs originals and standards strongly informed by the generation of young lions that came before him, as well as more contemporary aesthetics. He can easy lean into classic, romantic piano balladry one tune then be off on an electrified marathon the next.
