32 year-old acclaimed pianist/composer Keith Javors speaks in an emotional and communicative musical style that blends straight ahead and progressive jazz with splashes (and sometimes pools) of R & B influences. His latest album on the newly-formed Zoho Records (New York) is entitled Mo' City Jungle and builds upon this vision in a powerful acoustic set that draws from Detroit influences ranging from Kenny Garrett and Elvin Jones to Motown and its soul derivatives. Regarding Mo' City Jungle, Chris Potter calls Javors an improviser of extremely high caliber, noting the record's collective spirit of 'going for it' that brings the music joyously to life. In the liner notes to the diverse set of original compositions, Bunky Green says, There's a freshness here like spring after an extremely severe winter, going on to call Javors a creative force with an urgent message that cannot be denied....
