About the Album

"Live Normal" is the first track from pianist/composer Nick Sanders' album "Playtime 2050." On the album Sanders looks to the future - of jazz and the world in general - with dark humor and an eclectic imagination. Featuring Sanders' trio with bassist Henry Fraser and drummer Connor Baker, "Playtime 2050" features an inventive mix of era-spanning jazz and contemporary classical influences on a set of stunning original music. Where earlier outings supplemented Sanders' distinctive compositions with aptly-chosen pieces by such heavily influential composers as Herbie Nichols, Thelonious Monk and Ornette Coleman, "Playtime 2050" consists entirely of originals, a diverse repertoire ranging from entirely through-composed pieces to free improvisations, solo piano meditations to raucous swing tunes, tender ballads to prepared piano explosions.
