Following Filaments—named Top Jazz Debut in 2012 by Peter Hum of Ottawa Citizen and described as “an assured, organic debut from a pianist/composer who beyond the obvious elegance of his playing has a clear sense of the bigger artistic picture”—Julian Shore asks Which Way Now? Far from a statement of uncertainty, he poses the question to focus his record on the process of artistic exploration and the joy of musical discovery. Says Shore, “while I used to concern myself with writing a song that captures the minutia of a single person or memory, now I seek to show the world from which a person or feeling comes.” The recording features a cast of young lions: Gilad Hekselman, Dayna Stephens, Aidan Carroll and Colin Stranahan. Plus special guests Noah Preminger, Godwin Louis, Michael Mayo, Alexa Barchini, Kurt Ozan, Jorge Roeder, Samuel Torres and Michael Thomas.
