HAYOUNG LYOU/Metamorphosis: One of those clever young people that started with classical piano but found her calling in improv jazz, she's a serious practitioner as this isn‘t noodling--it's stuff that goes places. Her sensibilities might lean toward the left and she's got an open enough mind to draw inspiration from almost anywhere, her debut shows her to be as serious minded as you can be without giving yourself a stroke. A delightful ear opener of a player, this set is the start of something big. Well done.
