Wikipedia : This day (September 1, 2018), in New York City, died Randy Weston, an American jazz pianist and composer.

Official Web Site : Weston has the biggest sound of any jazz pianist since Ellington and Monk, as well as the richest most inventive beat, states jazz critic Stanley Crouch, but his art is more than projection and time; it’s the result of a studious and inspired intelligence…an intelligence that is creating a fresh synthesis of African elements with jazz technique

@ allmusic : However, starting in the late ’80s, after a long recording drought, Weston’s visibility in the U.S. skyrocketed with an extraordinarily productive period in the studios for Antilles and Verve.

@last.fm : No musician has been more devoted to exploring the connection between Afro-American classical music (jazz) and the ancestral spirits and rhythms of the African continent than Randy Weston.
