Emmet Cohen embarks on a trip through the long history of jazz piano with his latest album Future Stride.

In his first album for Mack Avenue, the pianist and composer recruited bassist Russell Hall and drummer Kyle Poole — his frequent collaborators — for a trio recording that also features performances by saxophonist Melissa Aldana and trumpeter Marquis Hill.

Future Stride revisits the sounds of stride piano from as early as the 1920s and reimagines them with a modern ear, resulting in a mix of originals and vintage tunes that sound contemporary.

Below you can listen to Toast to Lo, a tribute to the late Lawrence “Lo” Leathers that features a particularly thrilling performance by Aldana.
