Art is no longer about going against history. Instead, it uses the past as fuel and material for creativity. Pianist Uri Caine is the perfect epitome of this process of adoption and critical reflection. His various projects, from Mahler to Tin Pan Alley, have transported moments from the past to the aesthetic standards of the present. When he dedicates himself to compositions by George Gershwin with his usual sense of intelligent humor, he brings us into a time when the traces of Jewish heritage blended with new, black music.
