Pianist and composer Tigran Hamasyan marked the release of his new album, StandArt—his first album of American standards—last Friday and International Jazz Day on the following day with a solo piano performance of Charlie Parker’s “Big Foot,” which you can watch below. Hamasyan performs the tune on the new album with saxophonist and label mate Joshua Redman. You can hear that version and the rest of the album here.

Produced by Hamasyan, StandArt includes songs from the 1920s through the 1950s by Parker, Richard Rodgers, Jerome Kern, Elmo Hope, and others, plus a piece Hamasyan improvised with his bandmates—bassist Matt Brewer and drummer Justin Brown—and trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire. Also guesting on the album is saxophonist Mark Turner.

Tigran Hamasyan embarks on a tour of Europe with songs from the new album next week, with shows in Germany, France, Belgium, Austria, Spain, Italy, and Hungary. He tours the United States with songs from his previous album, The Call Within, in June. See below for all of the currently announced shows; for all the latest, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
